Organ donation is a generous, selfless gift.

The donor’s legacy lives on when someone gets a second chance at life. ALifeSource, we are the first responders making organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation a reality. 

We receive the call about a potential donor, meet with grieving families to discuss donation, then transport organ donations tthose desperately awaiting the transplant.

Why Donation Matters

Eye, tissue and organ donation offers healing to a family experiencing a loss and hope to the patient receiving the transplant.

  • 17 People die each day waiting for an organ transplant
  • 75 1 donor can heal more than 75 lives through eye and tissue donation
  • 8 1 donor can save up to 8 lives through organ donation

How Organ Donation Works

The organ donation process has been described as symphony; it takes many people working in concert to make the complex process happen.

Our Work

We save lives through donation and offer hope and healing.

Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) are the vital bridge between donors, their families and potential recipients.

At LifeSource, we have a clear purpose – to inspire the public to register and work with all of our partners to support donor families, manage the donation process, transport the gifts to the transplant center and lead our communities towards a culture of donation.
