Become a DOVE Donor

You are about to take the first step in giving someone the gift of life.

Donors are usually between 21 & 70 years of age and must be healthy and have excellent kidney function.

After receipt of your intake form, a representative from DOVE will reach out to set up a video or phone call where you are educated about living donation and advised on next steps should you decide to proceed.

It should be noted that the following medical issues usually rule you out from proceeding to a formal referral/evaluation with a kidney donor transplant team:


  • Obesity (BMI over 32)

  • Diabetes

  • Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure

  • Cancer (must be in remission > 2 years for most cancers)

  • Drug or Alcohol Dependence

  • Current Smoker (and not willing to stop)


If you choose phone call is best way to reach you we will be calling from phone # 551-449-8319.

Please note that DOVE believes in a zero-pressure approach. You are free to withdraw at any time if you feel that kidney donation is not right for you.

Thank you again for taking the time to learn about kidney donation to help save a Veteran’s life!
