Donor Network West is a federally designated nonprofit, 501 (c) (3), organ procurement and tissue recovery organization. Established in 1987, we serve more than 13 million people and connect a donor’s gift to those in need in our service area of 40 counties in northern California and Nevada.
Organ, eye, and tissue donation offers the hope to heal. The generous decisions of donors and their families allow us to recover and allocate organs and tissues for transplantation and research. We are able to carry out our mission of saving and healing lives thanks to our partnership with 175 hospitals, doctors, nurses, more than 500 funeral homes and 44 coroners and medical examiners.
Donor Network West is a Donate Life organization accredited by the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB). We are also a member of Donate Life America, Donate Life California and Donate Life Nevada.
Our volunteers help to educate people in their communities and encourage them to have conversations about organ, eye and tissue donation with their families as well as participate in special projects/events.
