How You Can Donate Life
The Gift of Life comes in many different ways through many different stories, personalities, lives and backgrounds. Through organ and tissue donation, you have the capability to save and enhance the lives of up to fifty people. Few things we leave behind in life could be as important.
To register as an organ and tissue donor, follow these important steps. Please remember that signing the back of your Driver's License is not enough! Although it is an act in support of donation, it does not enroll you in the electronic statewide database readily accessible by hospitals and procurement organizations.
STEP 1: Tell your family of your intention to donate. This is the most important step.
STEP 2: Enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry (PDF)
