The Washtenaw County
Clerk/Register of Deeds office is proud to partner with Gift of Life Michigan and the Michigan Secretary of State as part of a massive statewide initiative to inspire
residents to join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.
Joining the Donor Registry takes less than a minute, but it
could mean years of life for those needing a transplant.
You may become a donor by clicking the link to the right, calling
800.482.4881 or visiting a Secretary of State branch office.
Joining the Donor Registry is quick, easy, and offers a
lifetime of hope to the 3,000+ Michigan residents currently waiting for a
life-saving organ transplant and thousands more who need cornea or tissue
transplants. After joining the Donor
Registry, the Secretary of State’s office will send a heart logo to place on
your driver’s license or state ID.
People of all ages and medical histories can sign up as
potential organ, tissue and eye donors. Your medical condition at the time of
death will determine what can be donated; medical criteria changes regularly.
In 2012 a record 524,418 residents joined the Michigan Organ
Donor Registry and nearly 800 people received a life-saving organ transplant thanks
to the generosity of Michigan donors and their families. Thousands more received tissue and cornea transplants,
the gift of mobility and sight.
Thank you for helping give hope to those in need.
