Why Every Registered Donor Counts
Anyone can register, but less than 1% will become organ donors
Make a difference
Every day, people die waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Many more are waiting for a life-enhancing procedure to heal from injuries or disease. Anyone can register to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor, but only 1% of people who die in a hospital will actually become organ donors. Far more donors will be eligible to donate tissue, potentially impacting up to 75 people. That’s why every registered donor counts. Your decision to become a registered donor could bring hope and healing to so many others.
What We Do
HonorBridge inspires our community to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors. We manage the donation process, delivering gifts of life to the patients most in need.
The decision to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor is a selfless and lifesaving gift. We can walk you through the process.
We won’t rest until everyone waiting for the gift of life receives it. Recipients can connect with their donor families, share their stories, and join our passionate volunteers.
