What We Do

Gift of Life Michigan honors life through donation. We facilitate organ and tissue donation at the end of life, through the generosity of donors and their families.

Interesting Info
  • We have facilitated more than 10,000 organ transplants in the past decade!
  • Thanks to the generosity of Michigan donors and their families, we have had several record-setting years for organ and tissue donation recently.
  • Everyone can sign up to save a life, regardless of age or medical history!
