Through compassionate support, outreach and education to families and communities, our mission is to provide donated human tissue for the benefit of others.
RTI Donor Services is a not-for-profit, American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB)- accredited tissue recovery network dedicated to serving donor families and the donation community in perpetuating the circle of life. We help to enhance the lives of others by working with organ and tissue agencies to provide responsible stewardship of the gift of donation. In the communities that we serve, RTI Donor Services offers families the option of tissue donation, provides family aftercare services and offers community information and awareness.
