Organ Donation FAQs
| 2 min read
Who can be a donor?
- All adults within the United States are eligible to register as an organ donor. In some states, individuals under the age of 18 are allowed to sign up as donors and there’s no age limit – young or old – on who can be a donor.
- A parent or guardian must provide authorization to donate the organs of an individual who has passed away under the age of 18.
- If you have a medical condition, you are still encouraged to register as an organ donor. There are only a few infections that can impact the viability of organ, eye and tissue donations – including HIV, cancer or systemic infection.
