Iowa Donor Network - Anatomical Gift Transplantation Fund

In 1996, the Iowa Legislature established an Anatomical Gift Public Awareness and Transplantation Fund (see Iowa Code 142C.15). At the time of motor vehicle registration or renewal, Iowans are asked if they wish to donate a dollar or more to this fund. These donated funds are used to award grants for eligible out of pocket expenses incurred by transplant donors and recipients.

The reimbursements to anatomical gift grant applicants are not considered income and therefore will not generate a Form-1099.  As per Iowa Code 422.7(30a), donors may subtract unreimbursed travel and lodging expenses and lost wages in an amount not to exceed $10,000.  Applicants should confer with a financial advisor and/or tax preparer with questions.
