Organ Donation

Document if you would like for your organs to be donated for life-saving or life-transforming procedures or anatomical, therapeutic, medical or scientific purposes.

Organ donation does not affect funeral arranagments nor there are any financial costs to your family after your passing.

However, your family makes the final decision after your passing so it is important that you have this conversation now rather than relying on your OneWill only.

Please refer to the Donate Life website for more information.
