What is the Michigan Organ Donor Registry?


The Michigan Organ Donor Registry is a confidential database of residents who wish to be organ and tissue donors. The registry is maintained by the Department of State. It contains your name, address and date of birth. Gift of Life Michigan, the state's authorized organ recovery organization, may access the database to assist hospitals if a transplant is pending.

You may add your name to the Online Michigan Organ Donor Registry or at any Secretary of State branch office. Once you enroll, you will receive a heart sticker for your driver's license or state identification card, designating your decision to be an organ and tissue donor. If you have signed up prior to Jan. 1, 2007, you will need to re-enroll to update your registration and receive a heart sticker for your license or ID card.
