Check out this article -“My liver, your kidney: The world’s first non-identical organ swap” (it’s in New Scientist - sorry, but they are not allowing me to post the link to it here in this reply), but it IS possible, so good for your daughter for thinking outside the box. Also, Mayo might not do it, but there are other hospitals that allow for double donation to non-related recipients (UPMC and Colorado are just 2 that come to mind).

@rebekahinvt May I add my welcome to Mayo connect, and say that the topic you started out with is a real eye-opener! Thank you for your living donation of part of your liver, and the consideration you would also do a kidney. May I ask you this, do you have family members or friends who have struggled with either of these conditions, so you have witnessed the stress it can cause? Your attitude is commendable; I wish it could be bottled and shared with others, that's for sure!
