After nearly two years of restructuring and life-saving milestones, LiveOnNY achieves remarkable employee-designated recognition as a best place to work in NYC. LiveOnNY was named one of Crain's Best Places to Work in NYC 2023 for the second year in a row. The recognition comes during another record-breaking year for LiveOnNY, where selfless New Yorkers – organ donor heroes – saved more lives than ever before. Since implementing a new strategic plan in 2022, LiveOnNY worked with the NY community more than ever before, increasing the amount of organ donors, tissue donors, and organs transplanted by approximately 50% in each category, compared to the same time period prior.

Join the Movement of Saving Lives

We all have a role in ending the wait list. Nearly 9,000 New Yorkers statewide — 131 of whom are children under the age of 18 — are waiting for a lifesaving transplant, according to United Network for Organ Sharing. Nationwide, the number is approximately 100,000 - enough to fill two Yankee stadiums. But the myths of organ donation are starting to fade away and New Yorkers are saving more lives than ever. Last year, more than 1,000 organs were transplanted thanks to the selfless acts of organ donors in the greater New York area — a record — but the urgency remains, and the work is far from done. Together, as a community, New York has the power to end the wait list.

LiveOnNY works with hospital and community partners to provide education about organ, eye and tissue donation. Reach out to learn how you can help share the message about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation.
