Donor Alliance values our partnership with all Colorado and Wyoming County Coroners and their staff. We recognize the coroner community plays a key role in facilitating the organ and tissue donation process and ultimately providing the gift of life to the more than 2,500 in need in our area. To better collaborate in facilitating the gift of life, Donor Alliance offers the following resources to all Colorado and Wyoming Coroners.
Coroner Referral Program
As a Coroner for the State of Colorado or the State of Wyoming, you can play a significant role in helping both grieving families and patients in need of lifesaving, life-enhancing tissue grafts by notifying Donor Alliance of any deaths that do not occur in a hospital. This is a great service to those in need of transplants and to surviving families and friends who would like to choose donation.
