Making Matches that Save Lives

Connecting Potential Living Donors with Recipients


Our Mission

We provide the tools and opportunities for those awaiting a life saving transplant to connect with potential living donors that they would otherwise never meet.  Through initiating these relationships we hope to help people make connections that surpass political, religious, and socioeconomic barriers and focus on the humanity of the situation.  When you save a life by becoming a living organ donor, your donation not only has a direct impact on the recipient, but also on their family, friends, co-workers, communities, and probably most of all, yourself.


We provide potential living organ donors with education, support, and a place to connect with your match.

We provide those awaiting transplant with free tools to help you share your story, help you spread the word, and actively work to help you find your life saving match.

Casting Call

The Amazing Race is looking for a pair from the transplant/organ donation community to cast in their upcoming season!  Do you have a transplant story and relationship?   


The First Match

What Started it All


Our Story

Julie Daquelente, founder of Living Donor Match, had known since high school that she wanted to be a living organ donor.  After being turned away by multiple transplant centers in the summer of 2018 because she didn’t have a specific recipient for her liver donation and was wanting to donate altruistically, she realized something needed to be done.


Help us make lifesaving connections.

You don’t have to donate an organ to help make these lifesaving connections possible. 

We have multiple ways you can support us depending on what feels good to you! You can volunteer your time, join our Tweet Team, shop our store, support our campaigns, share your story or provide financial support.  Have an idea for a way we can do better? We’re all ears!
