Make a difference by donating your organs, eyes or tissues.Page Overview
Organ donation can make the difference between life and death for children, women, and men in need of organ and tissue transplants.
You can participate in Washington's organ donation program if you're at least 18 years old. If you're younger than 18, you can still register as a donor, but your parent or guardian will need to give permission upon your death for your donation wish to be completed.
Regardless of your age, you should inform family members about your decision so they'll be aware of your wishes.
Designate yourself as an organ donor by informing the representative handling your driver's license, instruction permit, or identification card application at a Licensing Services Office of your intention.
The Washington Department of Licensing (DOL) identifies donors with a small heart shape that appears on youe driver's license or ID card; you'll also be listed on the state's organ donor registry.
Online registration is quick and easy. All you need to do is submit the online donor registration form. You can modify your information, or remove yourself from the registry online, too.
If you registered through the DOL in person, you can create a profile for yourself online.
To complete your donor request by mail, send a letter with your name, address, and intention to become a donor to:
