Honoring Older Americans Month in May

Did you know that in 2015 about 33% of organ, eye, and tissue donors were over 50 years old? There is no age limit on giving the gift of life.

In May, we celebrate Older Americans Month. To increase donor registrations, it is critical to address myths surrounding age and health. Anyone of any age can register to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor. And, anyone of any age can be the recipient of an organ, eye, and tissue transplant. Join the conversation by sharing these important messages on social media with friends and family:

  • Not in perfect health? Don't rule yourself out! Anyone can register as an organ donor regardless of age or medical condition. Learn more at
  • Anyone of any age has the potential to save 8 lives and improve the quality of life for as many as 50+ others. Learn more at
  • Did you know that in 2015, 58% of organ recipients were over the age of 50?
You have the power to SAVE Lives
We are asking you to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor today.
In California:
