Just For You

Overview

A commonly asked question about organ, tissue and eye donation is: "Does my religion allow me to be a donor?"

Or, put another way, a statement is sometimes made as though it is fact: “Donation isn’t approved by my religion.”

The truth is that all major religions support donation, although there are certain requirements specified by different faiths. Major religions agree that donation, when carried out in a respectful and ethically correct manner is an act of love and generosity.

To get the message across to people of all faiths about religious attitudes toward donation, the role of religious leaders and clergy is critical. That’s why we thank you for joining us in this section of our website.
