Donor Network West
Our Mission

Donor Network West saves and heals lives through organ and tissue donation. We honor and respect the donors and families we serve with compassionate care, and inspire our communities to donate life.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the premier community resource for organ and tissue donation in our service area.  We will provide excellent and compassionate support and service to the public and health care professionals who serve them in the hope that each person will choose to be a donor.

Who We Are

Donor Network West is proud to be the third largest federally designated organ procurement organization and one of the largest tissue recovery organizations in the nation. Donor Network West has connected donors’ gifts to those in need since 1987.

What We Do

Donor Network West works in close partnership with families, doctors, nurses, more than 500 funeral homes, and 44 coroners and medical examiners to connect donors to recipients, because every donation is a generous, powerful gift that can save and heal the life of someone in need.

Donate Life Run/Walk 2019

On September 7th, 2019 Donor Network West will host the 9th Annual Donate Life Run/Walk 5K, 10K and Kids Dash. You will have the opportunity to run or walk the 5K or 10K through Bishop Ranch in San Ramon.

The Donate Life Run/Walk helps to raise awareness of the need for organ and tissue donors in California. All proceeds from the event will benefit the effort to inspire California residents to register on the Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor Registry and to honor the donors and their families who have already given the Gift of Life.

All registered participants will receive a tote, finishers medal, shirt and more!  Parking is free.

We encourage all participants to run or walk in either of the distances. Funds raised from the event go towards education of organ and tissue donation in the community, hospitals and outreach efforts as well as our annual Donor Family Gathering and research. 

Connect with us for more updates on the Run/Walk!
