Do I need a donor card?

You’ll be pleased to know that donor cards are no longer needed for those on the Donate Life donor registry.

Registering records your decision to be a donor and makes it known to the right people at the right time, automatically.  Neither you nor your family members need to do anything else or keep track of cards or letters.

It may be helpful to know that not all deaths happen in a way that allows donation to occur and family members will only be contacted by organ, eye and tissue recovery specialists if donation is an option.  If donation is not an option, donation specialists will not contact the family to spare them any unnecessary hassle during what is an already stressful time.
