The Limelight: Taylor's Gift

Taylor's Gift Foundation is a Coppell-based non-profit organization that encourages organ donation. The foundation was formed in honor of 13-year-old Taylor Storch of Coppell who died in a tragic accident last March while skiing with her family at Beaver Creek during Spring Break. Taylor helped five people with the gift of her organs. Now Taylor's legacy lives on through the inspiration of her foundation.

Many people think they are organ donors when in fact they are not. Why not make sure, by following the donor process and seeing if you are registered.

YOU can be a hero today! It only takes 90 seconds to become a donor. Click here for the Texas registry.

Be a part of the Taylor's Gift movement. Give now through a monetary donation OR give the gift of time. Contact GetInvolved@taylorsgift.org to learn more about volunteer opportunities!
