Children's Organ Transplant Association, Inc.
2501 West COTA Drive
Bloomington, IN 47403
The Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a voluntary health organization whose primary mission is to provide fundraising assistance to children who need a life-saving transplant and to promote organ, marrow and tissue donation. Our goal is to ensure that no child is ever denied a life-saving transplant or access to a transplant waiting list due solely to lack of funds. COTA's secondary focus is to promote organ donations and to provide public education in all aspects of the organ donation process. The association provides local campaigns with onsite staff assistance; free donation containers and promotional flyers; fundraising advice and support; and campaign start-up kits. Founded in 1986, COTA assists in the coordination of hospital selection, patient transportation, and other transplant needs as requested. In order to qualify for assistance, an individual must be a US citizen and in need of a life saving transplant. Educational materials include brochures and fact sheets.
