About Donate Life Wisconsin

Donate Life Wisconsin is an alliance of organizations and caring individuals across the state committed to increasing the number of donated organs, eyes, and tissue available for transplant to save and enhance lives. We motivate people to become donors through awareness, education, registration, advocacy, and support of donor families.

Our beliefs are sound, but our goals are lofty. We place a strong value on being:

  • Ethically-based
  • Responsible stewards of our funds
  • Adaptable to a changing environment
  • Supportive of our national partnership with Donate Life America
  • Exemplary collaborators

Our vision is that everyone in Wisconsin will choose to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor by the year 2025.
