Becoming A Donor

You have the option of becoming an Organ Donor and having this listed on your driver license or ID card.

You may become a donor or remove the designation when the license is first issued, upon renewal or upon a change of address.

If you do not have a license or ID, you may register online to become a donor. This is not necessary if you register through the DMV.

Anatomical Gift Account

When you agree to become an organ donor, the DMV will ask whether you wish to donate $1 or more to the state Anatomical Gift Account. The funds are forwarded to the University of Nevada School of Medicine for educational programs on the importance of organ and tissue donation. If enough money is donated, the account can also provide financial assistance to those in need of a transplant.

The DMV accepts donations during the licensing process and through the purchase of Organ Donor license plates. You can also donate directly to the Nevada Organ Donor Program.
