About Donation

While organ and tissue transplantation surgeries are now standard and highly successful procedures, the need for organ and tissue donation is still great. Thousands wait to receive life-saving organ transplants and life-healing tissue transplants in Arizona and across the nation.

Donor Network of Arizona (DNA) is the federally designated, nonprofit organ recovery organization serving the state of Arizona. We recover organs, tissues and eye donations across the state of Arizona to save and heal lives throughout the country. DNA works closely with Arizona hospitals to facilitate the selfless gift of donation.

Thanks to DNA’s many community, volunteer and health care partners, we are able to promote the Donate Life message throughout the state and encourage others to say yes to organ and tissue donation.

In Arizona, people can check the box to become registered organ and tissue donors when they apply for a driver’s license or state ID at the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division (ADOT MVD). They can also sign up online at www.DonateLifeAZ.org or call 1-800-94-DONOR.

After registering as an organ and tissue donor, we encourage you to speak with your family and friends about your decision to share life.
