Find Organ and Body Donation Organizations

Body and Organ Donation

Posted on April 07, 2016 by Khaleema Major

In celebration of National Donate Life Month, I’m Sorry to Hear is happy to announce the inclusion of Body Donation organizations and Organ Procurement centers from across the US in the Funerals360 Vendor Marketplace.

With the addition of Body and Organ Donation organizations as vendors in our marketplace, individuals can further plan their end-of-life wishes or carry out end-of-life wishes of their loved ones. After scouring the web, we have compiled the most up-to-date and accurate list of Body Donation and Organ Procurement Centers in the USA.

The update provides users with the ability to find, compare, and review a wide variety of body donation and organ and tissue procurement centers should an individual want to opt-in to either of these services at the end of their life. In addition to searching by name, users can now search for their nearest body donation or organ and tissue procurement center by City/State or Zip-code.

"Donating your body to science or medical research is one of the least expensive and most impactful funeral options available to us. By electing to donate your body after death, you can further medical research or help educate the next generation of doctors. Giving people the ability to make this choice and find an organization to see it through was very important to us. Equally impactful is the ability to be an organ and tissue donor. By signing up in advance and making it clear that you are an organ and tissue donor, you can help save lives. With the addition of these two searchable categories, we can help families fulfill their last wishes and even promote the extension of life for those who receive organs and tissue that are generously donated by the individual or family,"  stated Rachel Zeldin, Founder & CEO of Funerals360 by I'm Sorry to Hear.

The company requests that if you know of any local businesses that should be listed you contact them with the suggestion.
