ABOUT Donate Life Florida

...Donate Life Florida is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization contracted by the State of Florida, Agency for Health Care Administration to create the state’s organ, tissue and eye donor registry. Donate Life Florida is dedicated to motivating Floridians to designate themselves as organ, tissue and eye donors, so lives are saved and enhanced through donation and transplantation.

Donate Life Florida was established in 1997 by all Florida organ, tissue and eye donor programs in operation at the time under the name Florida Coalition on Donation. Among its signature programs is the award-winning college campaign, Get Carded.

Today, more than 5,200 patients listed at Florida transplant centers await life-saving organ transplants. Many of these individuals may get a second chance at life due to the generosity of those who designate themselves as organ, tissue and eye donors on Florida’s organ and tissue donor Registry.

The Joshua Abbott Organ and Tissue Donor Registry was created in 2009 to allow Floridians an easy, user-friendly means of joining the state’s Registry. Floridians can join the Registry through this Web site, when renewing their driver license online, or when obtaining/renewing their license at a local driver license office. You can also join the Registry by calling Donate Life Florida directly at 941-308-1019 and requesting a registry form.

If you already have “organ donor” on your driver license, you still are encouraged to join the new registry to ensure your previous designation is documented.

You have the power to Donate Life! Sign up today to become an organ, tissue and eye donor. Your generosity can save up to eight lives through organ donation and enhance dozens more through tissue and eye donation.
