Organ Donation in Kentucky
You can register to become a donor when you receive or renew your driver's license or state ID card. Anyone can become a donor, but those younger than 18 must have the consent of a parent or legal guardian for a donation.
In the event of your death, all donation expenses are paid for by the Transplant Program, and organ removal will not interfere with funeral and burial arrangements―nor will it disfigure your body.
Become a donor online by signing up for the Kentucky Donor Registry and simply following the instructions.
Thanks to the Kentucky General Assembly, you can also donate $1 to the Trust For Life fund when you renew your license at your local Circuit Clerk's office. The proceeds from the fund are used to educate the public about the need for organ transplants and donations.
For more information on this program, call them at (502) 694-3015, or contact your County Clerk's office.
Remember, becoming an organ donor only takes a few minutes, but those few minutes of your life could possibly add years to someone else's.
