TRIO is an independent, not-for-profit, international organization committed to improving the quality of life of transplant candidates, recipients, their families and the families of organ and tissue donors.  Through the TRIO headquarters and a network of chapters, TRIO serves its members in the areas of: Awareness, Support, Education, and Advocacy.   Promoting organ and tissue donation is an important social responsibility of TRIO.  We also work to inform members and the public about initiatives in the transplantation field by federal, state and local government bodies.  For more information on your local Chapter email INFO@KCTRIO.ORG    TRIO’s symbol is the Tree of Life ( a registered trademark). With its intertwining branches, it represents the intertwining lives of two human beings, the donor and the recipient, through the Gift of Life. Our local Chapter is now forming and building it’s membership and developing programs with the help of it’s members.  How can you help?  JOIN KCTRIO TODAY!  Support our annual fundraiser-MerleJam

We already know Kansas City is statistically one of the best areas to be in for transplantation, but we can do better.  Every effort is made to help heighten awareness of the need for registered donors. With our quarterly e-newsletter, our support groups, and recipient outreach programs, TRIO can improve the quality of life of people just like you.
