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.
Nevada has an Organ Donor specialty license plate you can display on your vehicles. $25 of the initial purchase and $20 of the annual renewal fee supports the Nevada Organ Donor Program.
You may also wish to visit the Nevada Lockbox, an official Secretary of State website where you can file Advance Directives and Guardianship Nominations for access by designated health care professionals and family.
