It’s about living. It’s about life. Organ, eye and tissue transplants offer patients a new chance at healthy, productive and normal lives and return them to their families, friends and communities. Transplantation is one of the most remarkable success stories in the history of medicine. It provides hope to thousands of people with organ failure. In addition, transplanted tissue offers hundred of thousands of people active and renewed lives. But transplantation requires the commitment of organ, eye and tissue donors. Unfortunately, the need for donors is much greater than the number of people who actually donate.
The Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Awareness Fund When you renew or apply for a new Maryland driver’s license or state identification card, you have the opportunity to contribute in dollar increments to the Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Awareness Fund. These charitable contributions are used to help promote public education and awareness regarding the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. The Fund also helps maintain the official Maryland Donor Registry.
