Organ Donation in New Jersey
Thousands of Americans die each year due to a lack of organ and tissue donations. A single donor can provide organs, bone, and tissue for dozens of people.
The New Jersey Organ and Tissue Sharing Network, a non-profit, federally certified, state-approved organ procurement organization, acquires and coordinates the placement of donated organs for patients on national transplant waiting lists.
Register your desire to become an organ or tissue donor whenever you apply for or renew your driver's license or state ID card. (If you're under 18 years old, you'll need the permission of your parent or guardian.)
Or, complete and sign a donor card, available through:
