In 2014, we joined our peer organizations to form LINC — a first-of-its-kind network of four organ procurement organizations. This collaborative model enables us to share best practices and realize the greatest possible outcomes for our partners, our communities, and the thousands of people who are awaiting lifesaving organ and tissue transplants. Together, LINC members are making lifesaving shifts in OPO operation.
MTS formed a charitable foundation to provide enhanced support to transplant patients, donor families, and the community. In addition to supporting organ and tissue recipients before, during, and after transplants, in 2015 the foundation will award up to $375,000 in partner grants, $80,000 in critical care nursing scholarships, and $200,000 in community wellness grants.
