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.

Donor family quilts

Tennessee Donor Quilts are heartfelt memorials for Tennessee donor heroes. Families and friends lovingly create a unique quilt square in tribute to their loved ones. These are then joined together and displayed throughout the state. If you would like to honor your loved one with a quilt square, please contact us by calling 888-234-4440 or emailing tds.info@dcids.org.

We can only do it together
