Shop or search at iGive -- choose COTA for Isabella Gwinn as your charity
Here is a brief explanation COTA, courtesy of my friend Bec . . . the way it works is that you can make a tax-deductible donation and it can be used by Chasity for transplant-related expenses. There are guidelines, like no using it for magazines or paying for grandparents to travel (unless they are going to help). There is about a 10-day turnaround where Chasity has to pay, and then submit the receipts for reimbursement -- so she needs to stay about 2 weeks ahead in money. Bills, like her mortgage, can be paid directly by COTA, assuming there is enough money there. It looks to me like the fund gets a grant based on what it raises in a year, and as other transplant families can tell you, the expenses do continue well into the future.
