Michigan Organ Donor Registry
The Michigan Organ Donor Registry is a database of residents who wish to be organ and tissue donors that is maintained by the Department of State. The registry is confidential and can only be accessed by Gift of Life Michigan to assist hospitals in the recovery and transplantation of organs and tissue.
Besides signing up online, you can add your name to the Organ Donor Registry when you:
- Renew or replace your standard driver's license or state ID card online at ExpressSOS.com.
- Visit a Secretary of State office and simply let the clerk know you want your name added to the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.
- Renew your state ID card by mail by checking the organ donor box and your name will be placed on the donor registry.
