How to Give

Life IS the Dream!

With your help, the future is bright.

Our world class team is committed to increasing access to transplantation and improving the lives of patients with organ failure and transplant recipients. In order to do this, we need your help!

With your support, we can reach our goals of

  • Increasing the number and type of transplants
  • Improving strategies to treat organ failure
  • Improving quality of life and long term outcomes for patients


With your help, the Alberta Transplant Institute can focus on its vision and mission - transforming and saving lives through new advances in transplantation research and clinical care - to become a world leader in innovative techniques.

Supporting scholarships, awards, and bursaries

Your gift provides exceptional learning opportunities that nurture discovery and growth, helping train the next generation of leaders in donation and transplantation. Your generosity inspires our learners to improve the lives of others and supports their journey in becoming the leading health professionals of tomorrow.

Building research capacity

When you donate to the Alberta Transplant Institute, you make remarkable health discoveries possible and join a vibrant community that is passionate about donation and transplantation. Research drives improvements in patient care. Your gift can help us increase organ and tissue donation in Canada, and enhance the survival and quality of life of Canadians who receive transplants. With a tremendous research record in transplantation, the University of Alberta currently ranks #6 in the world in transplantation (World University Ranking by Subject 2017).

 

Direct financial donations play a huge role in the faculty, but you can also contribute in other creative ways.

Bequest through a Will

Your gift can include cash, securities, real estate or other property. Talk to your financial adviser about the options. The most common types of bequests are: 
  • Residual bequests: Designate all or part of your estate. The advantage is that there is no need to update that part of your will, even as your estate adjusts in size.
  • Specific bequests: Designate a fixed dollar amount or a specific property. The advantage is that the size of the gift remains fixed and is the first to be distributed.
