Mission & Values
We are one of the 57 federally designated organ procurement organizations (OPOs) in the U.S.
HonorBridge is the largest OPO in North Carolina, serving 77 NC counties and Pittsylvania County, VA. Our purpose is to recover donated organ, eye, and tissue from deceased donors for transplantation and other life-enhancing procedures. We partner with over 100 hospitals, 4 transplant centers, and other essential partners to coordinate the donation process. We inspire our neighbors to register as eye, organ, and tissue donors. We provide support to the families of those who give the gift of life.
We are devoted to building connections that save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation.
We set the pace for lifesaving donation around the world through continuous improvement and innovation. By building trusting relationships, we inspire communities and partners to be passionate advocates and invite people to experience the fulfillment of giving life to others.
