Does my religion support donation?

All major religions worldwide support organ donation as long as it does not impede the life or hasten the death of the donor.

For most faith communities, donation is encouraged as a charitable and compassionate act that saves or enhances life. Statements and research on 37 international faith views on donation can be found here.

Should you still have questions about how your religion views donation, we encourage you to discuss the topic with your spiritual leader.
