National Donate Life Month

April 1, 2021 April 30, 2021

Each year during the month of April, Donate Life New York State celebrates National Donate Life Month, honoring the lifesaving gifts made by donors. Throughout the month, we join donation advocates across the nation, reminding the public that we all have the power to save lives by registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. We also focus efforts on raising critical funds to continue helping those in need of lifesaving transplants.
