Donate Life Virginia serves to save the lives of Virginians by working to increase the number of registered donors in the Commonwealth while promoting organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation.
Donate Life Virginia maintains the Virginia Donor Registry. This registry and the supporting Public Awareness Fund were established in 2009.
Help Us Save Lives
When you contribute to the Public Awareness Fund you’re helping fellow Virginians. Donate Life Virginia uses those funds to maintain the Virginia Donor Registry and support programs that increase organ, eye, and tissue donations.
You can make a donation during any transaction you have with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
About The Registry
Donate Life Virginia’s online registry contains the names of people in Virginia who have indicated their desire to be organ, eye and tissue donors either at the Department of Motor Vehicles or online.
When someone dies, and is deemed medically suitable for donation by a federally designated, non-profit organ procurement organization, a donation professional accesses DonateLifeVirginia.org to see if the person is registered as a donor.
A person’s decision to be a donor on DonateLifeVirginia.org is honored in Virginia. If the person is not listed, then the donation professional offers the family the opportunity for their loved one to donate. All information submitted will be used only by donation professionals and will be kept completely confidential. Thank you for helping to save and enhance the lives of Virginians by registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.
