Become a Deceased Donor
If you're a Louisiana resident, registering to give organs and/or tissue once your life has ended is easy.

  • Simply visit the Donate Life Louisiana website and fill out the required information. You will then be enrolled in the state's online donor database.

  • You can also declare your intentions by placing a red heart on your driver's license. 

Become a Living Donor

There are several paths you can take to become a living donor:

  • If you are donating to someone you know: you should contact the transplant center where the patient is listed and coordinate directly with their care team.

  • If you would like to donate to an anonymous recipient: you may do so by contacting a local Transplant Center. For information on Louisiana transplant centers, please click below.

  • You can also donate anonymously by: enrolling with the National Kidney Registry, an organization that works to match donors with patients nation-wide.
