Can I direct a donation?

  • It is permissible to specify an individual to receive a donated organ. If the organ is a suitable match for a person who is waiting for a transplant, they can receive the transplant as a gift. 
  • You cannot specify a donation on the basis of age, gender, race, or ethnicity. This would bypass the fair allocation system that currently exists. 
  • If you have questions about directed donation, contact Mid-America Transplant, Midwest Transplant Network, Saving Sight, or the Missouri Kidney Program.
