Become an Organ Donor

More than 114,000 people are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant in the United States. By donating your organs and tissue as a living donor and after you die, you can save up to eight lives and help heal the lives of more than 75 people. Your registration serves as a symbol of hope to patients who have been waiting.

  • 83% of patients waiting are in need of a kidney

  • Every 10 minutes, another person is added to the waiting list

  • The average wait time for a kidney from a deceased donor is three to five years

  • Nearly 2,000 children under the age of 18 are on the national transplant waiting list

  • Living donors can provide a kidney or part of their intestine, liver or lung to a waiting patient

You can register to become an organ donor the next time you’re at the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), or you can learn more about donation and register through New Mexico Donor Services. It is important to let your loved ones know you would like to be a donor.
