United Network For Organ Sharing (UNOS)

United Network for Organ Sharing, UNOS, is a national nonprofit that runs the nation’s transplant system matching lifesaving organs from registered donors to patients on the national waiting list. These computerized matches happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through our headquarters in downtown Richmond which result in 100 lifesaving organ transplants daily across the country.

Bringing together members of the transplant community to develop policies that make the best use of the limited supply of organs and give all patients a fair chance to receive the organ they need.
Developing technology and data services to help transplant professionals effectively transplant as many organs as possible.
Monitoring every organ match to ensure organ allocation policies are followed.
Educating transplant professionals about their important role in the donation and transplant processes.
