The Organ Donation and Transplantation Alliance (“The Alliance”) delivers relevant, targeted and scalable learning solutions for the organ donation and transplantation community of practice – including organ procurement organizations, transplant centers and programs, and hospitals where donations occur. By convening members across the community of practice, it is a platform to identify emerging concepts and innovative practices, and cascading resources and educational programs of transformational quality and value. The Alliance is not a membership organization, but partners with leading organizations across the continuum to advance a shared mission to save and heal lives through organ donation and transplantation.

History

The Alliance, an independent non-profit organization, was incorporated in 2006 for the purpose of ensuring a continued national commitment to increasing organ availability and eliminating deaths on the organ transplant waitlist. The first formal organizational meeting of The Alliance Steering Committee took place in Los Angeles, CA on February 21, 2006. (Click here to read our special edition 15th Anniversary story.)

The initial mission of The Alliance was to expand and extend the work of the Organ Donation National Breakthrough Collaborative. The Alliance was fully incorporated in the District of Columbia on June 13, 2006, with initial funding coming from generous financial donations of approximately 35 organ procurement organizations and AOPO.  From 2006 to 2010, the Alliance partnered with the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) to provide meetings that focused on the specific relationship between the critical care intensivist and the OPO community.

In the last decade, the Alliance has worked with hundreds of leaders across the donation and transplantation community to develop a broad collection of learning solutions, based on the insights and effective practices from leaders in the field, to cascade knowledge to thousands of professionals in the practices.  The tools, resources, professional development programs and learning opportunities are structured to continuously advance our field, ultimately saving and healing lives.

Currently, the Alliance is led by an 18-member board of directors and 3 national leadership councils dedicated to donation, transplantation and innovation.
