The South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations (SDAHO) has been part of the Workplace Partnership for Life Campaign (WPFL) for the past eight years. The DoNation Campaign is uniting America’s workforce for organ, eye, and tissue donation. DoNation engages workplaces of all sizes and across all industries in efforts to improve awareness about organ donation and transplantation and to sign more people up as organ, eye, and tissue donors.
As hospitals and healthcare workers adapted to a new normal in response to ongoing COVID-19 challenges, 1,333 small and large hospitals worked with donation organizations to promote organ, eye, and tissue donation and prompted 50,850 people to sign up to be donors! In the 11 years of the Hospital Campaign, partners have added more than 630,000 donor registrations—increasing the number of organs available for transplantation to improve the lives of others.
Join the 2023 DoNation Campaign, by creating a donation-friendly culture.
Workplaces large and small, across every business sector are invited to join the DoNation Campaign! Help create a donation-friendly culture in your workplace using free DoNation tools and resources.

How it Works:
Download the DoNation Toolkit to get started. Plan your workplace outreach activities using the DoNation Campaign Scorecard. Work with your local donation organization to track the number of people who sign up as organ donors because of your outreach. Work with your local Organ Procurement Organization to submit your scorecard after completing your campaign activities. Earn recognition from HRSA’s Division of Transplantation.
SDAHO and LifeSource, the non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives through organ, eye and tissue donation across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and portions of western Wisconsin, ask for your involvement and support. We invite hospitals to help educate staff members, patients and their families, visitors, and the extended community on the critical need for organ donation.
