    Organ Donation in Arizona

    Arizona's organ donation registry is administered by Donor Network of Arizona, which is a nonprofit, federally designated organ procurement organization.

    Did you know that another person will probably be added to the transplant waiting list in the time it takes you to read this page? A new person is added every 11 minutes. Over 90% of Americans consider themselves supporters of organ donation; however, less than 30 percent know how to ensure that they are on their state's organ donor registry.

    It's free to register as an Arizona organ donor, and your estate won't be charged anything if you become one. Testing and other organ donation costs are the responsibility of the state's organ procurement organization.

    Understanding Organ Donation

    Organ donation is the simplest and most benevolent thing you can do as an Arizona driver, and it doesn't take any of your money or time.

    Anyone can be considered for organ donation regardless of age, race, and health.

    Organ donors can specify what they will donate―everything from corneas, kidneys, and hearts to bones, skin, and lungs―so you can determine your level of comfort with the program. The actual donation will occur after your death, but the sentiment begins when you sign up and inform your loved ones that you have done so.

    Register as an Organ Donor

    You are never too young or too old to register as an Arizona organ donor. People who are less than 18 years old need a parent or guardian's consent. There's no upper age limit for donors.

    There are several ways to become a registered donor. You can register online, by phone, or in person at your local AZ MVD office.

    Be sure to talk to family members about your choice to register as an organ donor. This can help them avoid learning about end-of-life decisions at a difficult time.

    NOTE: You must supply a driver's license or state ID card number when you join Arizona's organ donor registry.

    Online

    You can register to become an organ donor online by visiting the Arizona Donor Registry's website.

    By Phone

    To register by phone, you may contact the AZ donor registry at (800) 94-DONOR or (800) 943-6667.

    In Person

    You can also put yourself on the organ donor registry by simply checking the box to become an organ donor when you get or renew your Arizona state driver's license or ID card. The Arizona Donor Registry will then send you registration information by mail.

    For more information on organ donation, please visit the Donor Network of Arizona at www.dnaz.org or Donate Life America.

    Update/Change Your Organ Donation Status

    You can edit or update your organ donor profile online at the donor registry website.

    If you have forgotten your username and password, you can get them by emailing Donate Life Arizona with your mother's maiden name and the email address you used to sign up.

    How You Can Help With Organ Donation

    Opportunities to help with organ donation efforts don't end with registering as a donor; there are a number of other ways to help.

    • Financial gifts help Donate Life Arizona perform vital educational efforts in the community.
      • You can contribute online using Paypal or your credit card.
      • You can also donate by sending a check to this address:

    • Order donation brochures online to put in your workplace, place of worship or any other place where you feel they can reach potential donors.
    • You can also help raise awareness as a Donate Life Volunteer. Volunteers give presentations to local groups, staff information tables, help out in the office and work at special events.
    • Bring friends and family members to local organ donation awareness events. Check Donate Life Arizona's calendar to find out when the next one will be held.
