Donate Life 2012 Each year, Donate Life releases their "National Donor Designation Report Card".

In June of 2012, this year's report card was released. You can read the full report here.

As an important reminder, Taylor's Gift Foundation has and will continue to support Donate Life's national efforts to increase organ donor registries. The engine that drives our foundation is to increase each state's official registry and continue to be a positive force in changing the conversation about organ donation to "It's About Life".

Some highlights of this year's report:

  • Nationwide, nearly 43% of individuals 18 and older have registered
  • Alaska and Montana lead the country with 79% each, followed by Washington with 75% and Oregon with 73%
  • Vermont, Texas, New York and Mississippi are at the bottom of the list
  • more than 100M adults have registered in their state's registries
