About DonationAbout Donation

Organ and tissue donation saves and heals lives. It offers the hope for a productive, healthy life for those in need. Every day, transplant recipients return to their families, friends, and communities – all through the generosity of individuals willing to give the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation.

DonorConnect is the organization that connects donors with recipients. We facilitate, coordinate, educate, honor, and advocate for donors and donor families so that one day no one on a transplant waiting list dies or is limited from the lack of a life-saving organ or tissue.

DonorConnect also supports the advancement of medical treatments, procedures, and education. Organs and tissues recovered and deemed not transplantable can be utilized by various agencies and teams when authorization is granted. We also partner with various local and national teams to facilitate the recovery of other tissues to further the work of approved research projects and studies in progress.
