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, Iowa Donor Network partners with hospitals, health care agencies, community partners, and donation advocates with the common goal to save and heal lives by inspiring Iowans to register YES to becoming organ, tissue and eye donors.   

Join us and help Iowa Donor Network achieve our vision that ‘all are inspired to donate life.’
