What if your company could save lives, restore sight, and improve health and mobility without costing your company a dime?
Become a Donate Life Nebraska Workplace Partner!
How it works:
9 out of 10 Americans support organ and tissue donation, but only 34 percent know how to sign up in their home state. Using your already existing corporate communications channels—email, your website or intranet, newsletters, bulletin boards, etc.—you can empower your employees to Donate life through organ, eye and tissue donation. We’ll provide all the tools you need to share information and host a donor registration drive at work, at no cost to you.
Why your company should get involved:
Many of today’s health care issues are complicated and costly, but the need for organ, eye and tissue donors can be easily solved simply by more people learning the facts and signing up on their state donor registries. Nebraskans can sign up on the registry at the DMV when getting or renewing their driver’s licenses or state ID cards, or online.
And the need has never been greater. More than 100,000 people are on the US transplant waiting list, with about 450 of those here in Nebraska. Thousands more need cornea and tissue transplants. Yet 18 people a day needlessly die while awaiting a life-saving organ transplant due to the critical shortage of donors.
By becoming a Donate Life Nebraska Workplace Partner, your company can save and improve lives by offering your employees and/or customers the opportunity to Donate Life.
If just ONE person in your organization registers to become a donor through your outreach efforts, potentially 8 lives can be saved, 2 people can regain sight, and up to 50 others can be helped through organ, cornea and tissue transplants!

The goal of this program is to build “partnerships” with businesses, and organizations throughout Nebraska to educate their employees or members about the critical need for organ and tissue donation and to encourage people to sign up on the Nebraska Donor Registry.
