About ORGANIZE:

 

ORGANIZE is a non-profit rebuilding the organ donation system. Founded by Greg Segal and Jenna Arnold after Greg’s father waited five years for a heart transplant, ORGANIZE’s goal is to flip supply-and-demand for organ transplants in the US. ORGANIZE built the first central organ donor registry in US history (previously the registration system had been state-by-state, and ran almost-exclusively through the DMV), and works closely with major social media platforms to create more culturally relevant ways for people to share their donor wishes with their families. ORGANIZE was awarded an Innovator in Residence position in the Office of the Secretary of Health and Human Services in DC, and received the Inaugural Stanford MedX Health Care Design Award in 2015. They won the $1 Million 1st Prize in the 2014 Verizon Powerful Answers Award, and were named to the Inc Magazine 35 Under 35 List as well as the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Social Entrepreneurship. ORGANIZE’s work has also been featured in Fast Company, Inc, Yahoo!, O Magazine, Marie Claire, and ESPN.
