Donate Life NYS
2022 State Budget Advocacy Event
Tues., Feb. 8 – Thurs., Feb. 10 from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm

Thank you for joining us for our annual State Budget Advocacy event, advocating for the inclusion of critical funding for Donate Life New York State to support several lifesaving initiatives including:

  • Operation of the NYS Donate Life Registry, the database of nearly 7 million New Yorkers who have authorized the donation of their organs, eyes, and/or tissues upon their passing;
  • Registry enrollment campaigns utilizing a combination of geographic, demographic, and behavioral targeting to increase awareness of the impact of organ, eye, and tissue donation and inspire New Yorkers to enroll in the Registry;
  • Social and behavioral research to better understand New Yorkers’ perception of organ and tissue donation, and determine the methods and means most effective at increasing donor registration rates within our large and diverse population;
  • Educational curricula for the public and professionals, such as physicians, nurses, critical care specialists, funeral directors, attorneys, college students, and high school students;
  • Strategic partnerships with organizations and entities committed to conducting outreach activities to advance organ, eye, and tissue donation;
  • Collaborative and educational forums with the greater donation and transplant community.
