How Family Circle Members’ Funds Are Used

Financial contributions are used to provide transplant families with the comforts of home. This includes not just lodging, but meals, transportation, communal kitchen, dining area, food pantry, living rooms, fitness center, laundry facility, computer access and so much more. In addition to finding comfortable accommodations within a caring environment, families gain a network of support by establishing friendships with other families facing similar anxieties, hardships, and uncertainties associated with the transplant journey.

Family Circle member benefits:

  • Listing on the Gift of Life Family House Contributors Wall located in the lobby of the Family House for one year
  • A personal invitation for two to the yearly President’s Reception
  • Recognition as a Family Circle Member within the Gift of Life Family House Annual Report and on the Gift of Life Family House Website
  • Recognition as a Family Circle Member in the Gift of Life quarterly newsletter


The Family Circle is made up of the following giving levels:

$5,000 + Honor in Platinum

$2,500 + Hope in Gold

$1,000 + Care in Silver

$500 + Grace in Bronze

$250 + Comfort in Copper
