Public fundraising is often used to help cover transplant expenses not paid by medical insurance. If you decide to use public fundraising as a way to cover your expenses, you may want to contact local newspapers or radio and television stations to help support your cause. There are many online sites that can help with fundraising such as GoFundMe and Fundly. Also, organizations like COTA help transplant patients run fundraisers to generate funds to support them through the transplant process.
It is important to understand that any money you do raise can only be used for transplant-related expenses. Consider enlisting the help of your friends, family, community, local organizations, merchants, and religious groups to help you with your fundraising efforts.
