Donation & Religion

All major religious and spiritual groups in the United States support organ, tissue and eye donation and consider it a gift of life to a fellow human being and an act of selfless love. Some religious communities have released official statements regarding their position on organ, tissue and eye, while others leave the decision to donate up to individuals.

If you are uncertain about the moral, ethical or spiritual value of donation, please discuss it with your spiritual or religious leader. You can also view a complete list of faith perspectives to learn more about religious and spiritual views on donation in the United States by clicking here.
