Donate Eight is a nonprofit organization that was founded by members of the New York City Real Estate, Building Management and Building Service community in response to the immediate need to increase organ donation awareness and registration.
We are the founding and primary fundraising organization for LiveOnNY Foundation, which was established as the philanthropic arm of LiveOnNY.
LiveOnNY is the second largest of the nation’s 58 nonprofit, federally designated organ procurement organizations. The LiveOnNY team is a dedicated group of professionals who work tirelessly 365 days a year to help save the lives of those in need of a transplant. Partnering with 11 transplant centers and almost 100 hospitals, they coordinate organ, tissue and eye donations for transplant. They are there to support and comfort donors and their loved ones. Additionally, they work to raise awareness and educate the community about organ and tissue donation. LiveOnNY serves a community of over 13 million people in the NY Metropolitan area.
LiveOnNY Foundation supports this mission by using contributions to help increase the number of lives saved through public and medical education, special projects and to support both donor and recipient families through their transplant journey. Donate Eight currently contributes all funds raised at our annual Gala to LiveOnNY Foundation to foster and support their amazing work.
