You’re empowering families to heal. There’s so much power in a “Yes” because it can ripple across time and space forever. By saying “Yes” and joining the donor registry, you are bridging hope from one life to the next.

How organ and tissue donation works

There are nearly 1,500 people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant in Colorado, Wyoming and the United States.

When a registered donor passes away, Donor Alliance meets with the family and medical professionals to help honor the donor’s decision.

A nationwide database quickly identifies the best match for an organ and a transplant recipient.

Donor Alliance helps facilitate the recovery and transportation of the donor’s gifts to transplant centers in a safe and timely manner.

Donor Alliance walks alongside families and honors their loved one’s lifesaving and healing gifts.

The registry is a confidential, first-person authorization list of a person’s decision to give the gift life. By registering your decision, you are giving hope to those who are awaiting lifesaving and healing transplants.
