The Patches of Love Quilt travels to hundreds of cities each year, honoring to those who gave the gift of life and raising awareness about organ and tissue donation. The National Kidney Foundation welcomes all organizations and families to display the Quilt at events, memorials, meetings, picnics and more.
The cost of reserving the Quilt is $80 per every 2 panels plus shipping both ways. If you have a FedEx account number, you can include it on the reservation form and we will put the number on the FedEx air bill when we ship the panel(s) to you. Reservations include 2 Quilt panels, an optional media kit to assist you in promoting your event and copies of Quilt brochures and donor family newsletters for display. Larger requests can be accommodated for an additional fee. Payment must be received before your Quilt is shipped.
If your organization is hosting multiple events around the same dates, we will allow you to keep the Quilt throughout your events to avoid additional charges as long as there are no other conflicting reservations.
Each Quilt panel measures 10 feet across and 6 feet down. Panels have fabric loops in the top to use with a wooden dowel, rope or pipe system. The Quilt does not ship with display hardware, so you will need to make arrangements for proper display with your event organizers. Please read the Quilt Display and Care Instructions for more information.
There is no fee for cancelled reservations. If you are able to notify us before we ship your Quilt, we will credit your organization to reschedule your display at no additional cost.
The reservation process should take less than 5 minutes:
