When I join the New York State Donate Life Registry, what organs and tissues am I signing up to donate?

When you join the Registry, you are able to donate organs, eyes and tissues.

  • Organs include: heart, kidneys, pancreas, lungs, liver and intestines.
  • Tissues are: eyes/corneas, skin, heart valves, bone, blood vessels, nerve, cartilage and connective tissues.
  • You can NOT register as a bone marrow donor in the Registry. You can register as a bone marrow donor at “Be The Match Registry.”
  • You can NOT register to donate your whole body to research or science on the Registry. See information below to learn how to do this.
