National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month

August 1 to August 31

National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month is a collaborative initiative of the National Organ, Eye, and Tissue Donation Multicultural Action Group to save and improve the quality of life of diverse communities by creating a positive culture for organ, eye, and tissue donation. National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month stems from National Minority Donor Awareness Week, founded in 1996 by MOTTEP to bring heightened awareness to donation and transplantation in multicultural communities.



NMDAM is focused on outreach and education, including virtual events and messaging to:

  • Provide education about organ, eye, and tissue donation and transplantation
  • Encourage donor registration & family conversations about donation
  • Promote healthy living and disease prevention to decrease the need for transplantation.
