Donation to the Organ and Tissue Donor Registration Fund
When a customer renews or requests a duplicate license or ID using the Internet, he/she has the choice of making a $2 donation to the Organ and Tissue Donor Registration Fund. This $2 donation will be added to the renewal or duplicate fee. See the Organ and Tissue Donor Program section in Chapter One of the Driver’s Manual or visit www.massrmv.com for more information about organ and tissue donation.
There is no option in the Massachusetts Donor Registry to pick and choose which organs and tissues one wishes to donate. If you are interested in donating only certain organs or tissues, then you should go to the New England Organ Bank or the United Network for Organ Sharing websites. Also, be sure to talk to your family about your wishes.
The customer's medical condition at the time of death will determine which organs and tissues can be donated.
If a customer would like more information about organ and tissue donation and transplantation, he/she can contact the New England Organ Bank or the United Network for Organ Sharing. There are also detailed brochures available at RMV Service Centers.
