Organ Donation in NevadaSave Lives by becoming an Organ Donor in Nevada Register Now ►
Make a difference by donating your organs, eyes or tissues.
Currently, 90,000 people are waiting for an organ transplant, and many of them will die without receiving an organ donation. Every 14 minutes, another name is added to the transplant list, and every day, 16 people die because they didn't receive a transplant in time.
The need for organ and tissue donors is enormous. One donor can positively affect close to 100 lives.
Becoming a donor bears no cost to you or your loved ones, and there are no age limits or health requirements to worry about. You can even specify which organs you wish to have considered for donation in the event of your death.
When you apply for or renew a driver's license or ID card at a Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) branch, you can declare that you'd like to become an organ and tissue donor. Your decision will be signified on your license or ID card.
Or, simply download the Donor Registration Form and submit it to the address listed on the form to become a registered donor.
