Anatomical Gifts

In This Section

What if I wish to donate my organs or other body parts after my death? May I include this wish in my living will?

Yes. If you are at least 18 years old, you may make an anatomical gift of the entire body or of body parts (including organs, tissues, eyes, bones, arteries, or blood) by expressing an intent to do so in your living will. You may also grant your attorney-in-fact the specific power to make an anatomical donation in a durable power of attorney for health care.
