Inspire Iowa

Let's Inspire Iowa to Donate Life!

Inspire Iowa is an annual outreach campaign organized by Iowa Donor Network (IDN) to increase organ, tissue and eye donor registrations across the state. 

Each April, during National Donate Life Month, hospitals, health care organizations and IDN volunteers join together with the common goal to save and heal lives by inspiring Iowans to register YES to becoming organ, tissue and eye donors. 

Participants hold registration drives at their hospitals and at large community events to spread the life-saving and life-healing message of donation. Some organizations also host flag raising ceremonies to honor donors and their families for their immense generosity in choosing to share life.

IDN works with participating organizations to coordinate registration events, provide registration and promotional materials and assist with public relations activities.   

Thank you for joining our vision of ‘Inspiring all to donate life.’
