NDFC Policies

As the largest national organization of donor families in the world, the National Donor Family Council (NDFC) is committed to providing a strong, unified voice in developing standards of care, position statements and policies based on the needs and opinions expressed by our members.

Each issue is carefully reviewed and discussed with many donor families and healthcare professionals to ensure that the NDFC's positions are in fact the positions of our donor family membership. If you have concerns or questions about an NDFC policy, please contact us.
