We Are Sharing Hope SC strives to raise public awareness about the true gift of organ and tissue donation and the incredible need that exists for a life-saving and life-enhancing transplant. With the assistance of our dedicated staff and volunteers throughout the state, we participate in health fairs, athletic events, civic meetings, and events at other educational venues.

Become a Donor Today
In 30 short minutes, three people will be added to the national transplant list, where approximately 120,000 people in the U.S. and over 1,000 in South Carolina are waiting for a life-saving transplant - 22 of those people will die today before receiving one. A single donation can make an enormous difference, both to the donor’s family and the recipient.
