About Our Organization

Founded in 2003 by liver transplant recipient and Olympic Medalist snowboarder Chris Klug, the Chris Klug Foundation (CKF) is dedicated to promoting lifesaving donation and improving the quality of life for donors, donor families, organ transplant candidates, and recipients.


Each day, thousands of people – people just like you – are waiting for a second chance at life. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share our mission to educate and inspire others about the importance of organ and tissue donation registration, helping to eliminate the wait for those here at home and around the US.



•  Chris Klug Foundation advocates for organ and tissue donation and inspires those touched by transplantation.

•  Through our programs we reach tens of thousands of young people each year, equipping them with facts about organ donation so they can make educated decisions.

•  The Chris Klug Foundation is committed to operating to the highest standards of accountability.


The Chris Klug Foundation seeks to inspire people to register to be organ donors and to give inspiration and hope to those who are on the waitlist or have already received a transplant.

The Chris Klug Foundation educates people from across the United States about the importance of registering to be an organ donor. We reach people from 9-90 years old through our events, educational curriculum, and volunteer opportunities.

The Chris Klug Foundation educates and inspires people across the United States to REGISTER to become an organ donor and to help save lives. You can register here!
