The New York State Donate Life Registry is a database of people who have signed up to donate their organs, eyes and/or tissues after their death. This database is kept confidential.
- When people sign up to enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry they agree to donate their body parts after they die. This is a legal document ensuring the person’s wish to be a donor is carried out.
- If you enrolled before July 2008, please take a moment to rejoin. Prior to July 2008, you registered your intention to donate. Your family still had to give permission for donation to occur.
- If you enrolled in the Registry after 2008, your family will be told of your decision and given information about the process but their permission is not needed for the donation to proceed.
