Donate Life Texas


Established by the 79th Texas Legislature in 2005, the Glenda Dawson Donate Life Texas Registry allows individuals to record legal consent for organ, eye and tissue recovery after death. Since then, legislation has created partnerships with the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV), which allow individuals to join the registry when applying for or renewing their driver’s license, ID or vehicle registration.


In late 2021, the Donate Life Texas Donor Registry celebrated its 13 millionth registration. Donate Life Texas Inc., a nonprofit organization, maintains and operates the donor registry and is governed by a board of directors comprised of the CEOs of the three organ procurement organizations in Texas: LifeGift, Southwest Transplant Alliance and Texas Organ Sharing Alliance. It is part of the Donate Life America not-for-profit association of national organizations and local partners across the United States, serving as a national voice and inspiring all people to save and enhance lives through organ, eye and tissue donation.
