About the Registry

Thank you for helping to save and enhance the lives of Virginians by registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.

 

This online database, DonateLifeVirginia.org 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.
