What is Legacy?
Legacy is a non-profit organ, eye and tissue registry for the state of Alabama. Legacy serves as the voice of the donor when he cannot speak for himself. Everyone who says “yes” to organ donation at the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) office is on Legacy. Once a quarter the new donor designations are transferred from the DMV to Legacy. In addition to registering via the DMV office you can register now by clicking here.
Or, click here to download a Registration Form.
The Alabama Organ Center and the Alabama Eye Bank have access to the Legacy data and can share an individual’s donor designation with their family. While we encourage people to have family discussions about donation, not everyone does. So Legacy can be the voice of the potential donor. As a registered donor, you are choosing to make a difference with your gift. It’s a legacy that will live on long after you’ve gone.
