DOVE Veteran Campaigns

The average wait for a kidney from a deceased donor is 3-5 years. Veterans are dying while waiting for a kidney. We can help improve the length and quality of Veterans’ lives by finding them living kidney donors.

We know the vast and tight network of Veterans and the goodwill of the larger community of Americans would “Step Up” as donors if they knew how.

DOVE works closely with the Walter Reed Military Medical Center’s Transplant Program as well as some of the VA Transplant Centers. Additionally, Veterans who are listed at non VA centers or their transplant providers can register with DOVE. DOVE requires confirmation of service history and listing with US Transplant Center prior to working with any recipient.
