This page profiles CDT events and other opportunities donor families have to remember and memorialize their donor.
Celebrated every year, CDT invites donor families from the past year to participate in a ceremony which features catered brunch, professional speakers and a memorial slideshow of our donor heroes.
Due to circumstances surrounding COVID– 19 CDT has decided to celebrate and remember our donor heroes virtually this year. We encourage you to join us on Facebook for this virtual event. One of the ways we would like to honor your loved one during the event is through our annual memorial slideshow display. If you’d like to include your loved one in our slideshow, please fill out the form below. You will submit their photo along with their full name and 10 words or less description about them. Please submit no later than June 20th. When submitting please include your full name and address. We will be sending out ONE Donor Memorial Bell per family so that you may ring the bell when your loved one’s slide is shown during the virtual event. More instructions on how to participate virtually to follow should you decide to attend the Facebook event.

Many families find it powerful to share the story of their loved one's life and legacy. At CDT, we invite families to write a "Gift of Life Story" which will be posted on our website and utilized to educate and inspire others. To learn more or submit a story today, please click below.
A unique way to remember and celebrate your loved one's life and legacy is through submitting a quilt square to be presented on a CDT Celebration of Life Quilt. The quilts are utilized in community education activities all throughout the Northeast. Over the past 15 years, each patch has surely inspired thousands to register as a donor and give the gift of life. To request a brochure with additional information, please click below.
CDT invites donor families to fly or display the donate life flag in their community as a visible symbol of their loved one's heroic donation. To request a complimentary Donate Life flag and get ideas for display, please click below.
CDT is available to help families who wish to hold an event or pursue a special initiative to honor their loved one and raise public awareness. Examples include holding a fundraising event (ex: bowling, softball, golf, community dinner), establishing a scholarship, etc. For families interested in fundraising, we recommend meeting with a CDT representative to discuss options.
Each year, hundreds of donor family members from across the Northeast come together to walk or run in memory of their loved one. Please click below to learn more.
