Already registered as an organ donor? Here are more ways to help support our work.
By registering to become an organ, eye and tissue donor, you could help more than 75 people — and that’s not counting the lives that those 75 people touch. 95% of Americans are in favor of being an organ donor, but only 58% are registered. Here are things you can do to support organ donation and help bridge that gap.
Contribute online to Donate Life America
Financial support for Donate Life America means that, as an organ donor, you are also helping us to register more donors. Every dollar that is contributed by the public to Donate Life America goes directly towards increasing the number of donated organs, eyes, and tissues that save and heal lives.
Whether your contribution is made in honor of a donor, a loved one currently waiting for a transplant, a recipient, a friend or family member who died waiting—or just because you recognize the urgency of the cause—all of it goes to helping save lives.
Once you have made a contribution, you will be invited to post on the Donate Life America Tribute Wall. The Donate Life America Tribute Wall was developed as a way for Donate Life America contributors to honor and remember their loved ones who have been touched by donation and transplantation. Supporters can submit a message in honor or memory of their loved one which will then be posted on the wall. There is also a search function that allows users to search by the name of the honoree or the name of the person who submitted a message.
You can also ask your company’s HR department about matching your contribution. It’s an easy way to double the impact of your gift.
Fundraise on behalf of Donate Life America
Create a fundraising page in honor of a life event, in memory of a loved one, or simply because you know the need is great. Peer-to-peer fundraising is an incredible way to support Donate Life America and our mission.
You can also fundraise for DLA through Facebook.
