The spotlight charity for the month of July is Gift of Life Foundation.

Gift of Life was incorporated in 1971 by Michigan transplant surgeons to provide a network to get kidneys to the people who need them most. 

Today, Gift of Life recovers more than 1,000 organs every year for transplantation from nearly 400 or more donors, saving hundreds of lives. Bone, skin and other tissues are also recovered, helping to significantly improve the lives of thousands of seriously injured and sick recipients. Gift of Life also works with Eversight to manage cornea and eye donation.

In addition, Gift of Life maintains and grows the Michigan Organ Donor Registry in partnership with the Michigan Secretary of State and Donate Life America. The registry is a confidential database of people who have documented their decision to help others by becoming an organ, eye and tissue donor upon their death, if medically suitable.
