Other Donation Programs

The State Anatomy Board is a whole-body donation program in which you become a body donor. In addition to becoming a body donor, you may also become an organ and tissue donor.  When you are both an organ and a body donor, if your living organs can help someone with transplant that program takes precedence.

To b​ecome a body donor complete the forms under the menu link ‘Become A Donor’ on the sidebar.

There are several ways to register to become an organ, eye and tissue donor.  One of the easiest is to sign up as an organ donor when obtaining or renewing a driver’s license or state identification at a Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA)

No matter where you register, we encourage you to share your decision and support of body, organ, eye and tissue donation with your family and friends. Specific program websites are listed below for more information.
