Organ & Tissue Donation

#IGotThePower is a public awareness curriculum to encourage the need for a conversation about one’s wishes and to encourage registration. To date, this program has been shown to over 120,000 students in New Jersey.

Every day 17 people die waiting for a life-saving organ transplant, and a new name is added to the transplant waiting list every 9 minutes. Currently, there are more than 100,000 people in the United States waiting for a second chance: a lifesaving organ transplant. 

Please have a conversation with your family and friends about your organ donation wishes. Register to become an organ, tissue, or cornea donor at the link below.


Available for college-bound students who have been impacted by organ donation and/or current advocates for organ and tissue donation.

 We fund college scholarships 2 different ways:  

A) NJ statewide: Through our partner fund within the NJ Sharing Network 

B) JT Vicci Scholarship: Through Cranford NJ high school
