Become a Donor

Welcome to the South Carolina Donor Registry! This registry is maintained By Donate Life South Carolina.

YES! I wish to donate my organs and tissues to save or improve someone's life.

Before you sign up please take a few minutes to make sure you understand what it means to be on the South Carolina Donor Registry.

Becoming an organ, eye, and tissue donor truly shares life with others. By putting your name on the South Carolina Donor Registry, you agree to donate your organs and tissues, to be recovered after your death, for use in transplantation, research and/or education. After your death, an examination and tests will be performed to determine the best medical uses for your gift. The law protects your choice. Unless you change your mind and remove your name from the Registry (which you may do from the Update your Info button) your wish to donate will be honored and no one else, including your family, will be able to change your decision. How does donation help save and enhance lives?

  • Organs used for life-saving transplants include heart, liver, pancreas, kidneys, lungs, and small bowel.
  • Tissues used to save or improve life include eyes/corneas, heart valves, bones, and skin grafts.
  • Research uses of organs and tissues can include studies on curing diabetes, Alzheimer's, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other life-altering or fatal diseases.
  • Organs and tissues that cannot be used for transplantation, research or therapy can be used for educational purposes to advance scientific and medical knowledge.
