Sign up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor
Why be a donor?
Currently, more than 116,000 men, women and children are awaiting organ transplants in the United States.
- 1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives.
- Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list.
- Sadly, an average of 20 people die each day* because the organs they need are not donated in time.
*More than 7,000 candidates died in 2016 while on the wait list, or within 30 days of leaving the list for personal or medical reasons, without receiving an organ transplant.
