Learn About Donation Donor Registry

Promote Donation

Register as a donor






The first step is to make sure that you are a registered donor, either online or when you renew your license. At any Louisiana OMV, say "YES" when they ask if you want to be an organ donor and get a heart on your license!

Once you’re registered, let your friends and family know and ask them to make the same lifesaving decision.

Outside of Louisiana, donatelife.net can be used to find the donor registry of other states.
