Support the Living Donor Institute

About The Living Donor Institute

The Living Donor Institute is an important component of Saint Barnabas’ comprehensive kidney transplant program. We offer innovative living donation options available only at select transplant centers around the country. For many patients, this makes kidney transplantation possible.

Your gift to the Living Donor Institute enables our nationally recognized health care team to provide hope for families that turn to us in times of uncertainty. Every gift, no matter its size, supports the extraordinary individuals that give life to others and the patients in our care.

The Living Donor Institute provides the following comprehensive services:

  • The Living Donor Kidney Exchange Program for patients with a willing but incompatible donor
  • The Altruistic Living Donor Program that matches altruistic donors with recipients awaiting transplantation
  • Living- and Emotionally-Related Donor Transplantation
  • Minimally invasive surgery that reduces pain and complications for kidney donors and recipients
  • Medical research to advance living donation as the best option for patients with chronic kidney disease
  • Coordination of the screening process for donors who live outside NJ
  • Live From--Kidney Transplant, in collaboration with Liberty Science Center and The Sharing Network of NJ, to introduce students to kidney transplant through live telecasts
