North Dakota Organ Transplant Fund

In addition to NDAD's direct financial assistance for organ transplant recipients and donors, NDAD administers the North Dakota Organ Transplant Fund.

This fund was established by the North Dakota Legislature in 1991 to provide funds to help individuals alleviate demonstrated financial needs related to costs associated with transplant operations not normally covered by insurance.

Contact NDAD at (800) 532-NDAD (-6323) or one of NDAD's four offices if you or someone you know is in need of financial assistance for costs associated with an organ transplant.
