Hearts for Russ is dedicated to making a difference in organ transplantation. Since 2014, we have been raising funds for non-profit organizations that are working to increase participation in the organ donation registry, and supporting patients and families undergoing transplants.

We ask you to join us in our quest to save lives through the miracle of transplantation.

Support Our Misson

New York State has one of the lowest organ donor registration rates in the nation. Hundreds of New Yorkers die each year waiting for a transplant, while just one donor can save up to eight lives.

Consider donating to our mission to help change that.
