Saving lives

The first responsibility of medical professionals is to save lives. Donation is only considered after all life-saving options have failed.

Religious Support

All major religions support organ donation as an act of personal charity and/or love for neighbor.

Donation Supply

Living donation increases the existing organ supply.

Race and Ethnicity

Donors are needed for all races and ethnic groups. Transplant success rates increase when organs are matched between members of the same ethnic background.
