Tennessee Donor Services’ mission is to save and improve lives through organ, eye and tissue donation. As a nonprofit organ procurement organization (OPO), we connect lifesaving gifts to patients who need them most. TDS serves more than 6 million people in Tennessee and Virginia.

Donor memorial

Donation changes lives. We honor all donor heroes who made lifesaving and changing gifts. Please take a moment to view our memorial wall. We also encourage you to share a memorial tribute honoring your special donor hero. It may give hope to those waiting and inspire others to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. Thank you for supporting your loved one’s decision to save lives.

Our Story

I’m extremely grateful for Brendon’s donor because now he gets to live the life he deserves.

I was Jonathan’s Defensive Line Coach and he was one of my toughest players… The last thing he requested was for me to receive the gift of life from him.

David was passionate about golf. Having received a transplant gave him the ability to be passionate about life and living it to its fullest…
