About Us


Welcome to CORE, the Center for Organ Recovery & Education.

As an organ procurement organization, CORE is dedicated to serving the needs of transplant patients by promoting organ, cornea and tissue donation, education and research for the purpose of saving and improving lives. We also serve donor families by extending heartfelt compassion and providing opportunities for remembrance.

CORE is made up of committed staff members and volunteers who each bring righteousness and expertise to help us fulfill our mission.

But more importantly, we all bring passion and commitment to our work. We have each made A Pledge for Life to save or enhance the lives of transplant patients through organ, tissue and cornea donation.

All of the dedicated individuals who work on behalf of CORE have a unique opportunity to see the result of their hard work in the faces of those we help. They are a constant reminder of why CORE is such a valuable part of the community.

We invite you to learn more about organ, cornea and tissue donation by reviewing our website, or by calling us at 800-DONORS-7 (800-366-6777). We also encourage you to make A Pledge for Life yourself by registering to become a donor, which you can do by visiting our “Register to be a Donor” page.

Thank you,

Susan A. Stuart, President & CEO
