How can I sign up to be an organ donor?

 Each state has its own rules and regulations surrounding organ donation, as well as a separate organ donation registry which can be accessed online. Click here to find your state’s registry and confirm your intent to be an organ donor.

We also recommend speaking to your family about your intent for organ donation. If you are still wondering whether you should be an organ donor, your family can provide some clarity and advice.

 Did you know that over 120,000 people are in need of organ transplants in the United States alone? Since those in need of organ donation far outnumbers the availability of actual donations, thousands of people die each year waiting for life-saving operations.

When you sign up to be an organ donor, you can provide the Gift of Life to up to 8 people; as a tissue or eye donor, you can positively affect up to 50 recipients. Imagine knowing that in your death, you could help someone walk, see, or live. You could provide hope to a child or adult who thought their time with loved ones was over, or who never thought they would be able to move again. You will also provide comfort to your family, who will still grieve yet know that your organ donation saved and changed lives.
