1. Start Your Quote:
In Wisconsin, more than 1,500 people are waiting for organ transplants; a name is added to the waiting list every 13 mintues.
Being a donor doesn't cost you or your family anything. Your funeral won't be delayed or altered; an open-casket ceremony is still possible. Donors receive the same level of medical care as non-donors. All major religions in the United States support organ and tissue donation.
- Marking the "yes" box next to the organ donor option on the Drivers License/ID Card Application.
- Signing and dating the back of your driver's license.
- Listing the body parts/organs/tissues you wish to donate.
- Important: Placing the orange "organ donor" alert sticker on the front of your document, on top of the embedded spot.
Sign up online through Donate Life, an organization that works hand in hand with the Department of Transportation (DOT) for organ and tissue donation. By filling out the form provided, you're confirming your choice to become an organ donor.
DOT will mail you an orange donor dot to place on your driver's license or ID.
If you already have a Wisconsin driver's license or state ID card, then you'll need to:
- Sign and date the back of your document.
- List the body parts/organs/tissues you wish to donate.
- Mark the "yes" box for organ donor when you renew your driver's license or state ID card.
Change your donation by:
- Completing a duplicate driver's license/state ID form.
- Paying the fee.
- Signing and dating the back of the document, listing the organs and tissues you wish to donate.
Or, you can just cross off the donor information on the back of our driver's license, and mark it with the date you changed your mind.
Visit the official Donate Life site to learn more about becoming a donor.
