    Donor Facts

    Being a donor doesn't cost anything to you or your family. Being a donor won't delay or alter your funeral plans; open-casket funerals are still possible. Donors receive the same level of medical care as non-donors.

    Visit Donate Life Virginia or the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) donor page for more information about organ and tissue donation.
