Donor Families

How Donation Works

If you and your family are new to donation and have questions about how the process works, click here for the answers. In addition to helping you learn about how organ and tissue donation can save and improve lives, Gift of Life Michigan has many services to help you and the rest of your family cope, grieve, understand and – if you wish – become an advocate of donation after your loved one has selflessly given the ultimate gifts.

You are special

Family members of donors are special to Gift of Life so we work hard to support and help you during your grieving process and beyond.  Email our aftercare services staff for more information on resources available to you, as well as volunteer opportunities within the donation community.


The Michigan Donor Family Council donated a bench to honor organ, eye and tissue donors statewide.

It was placed in the memorial garden at our Ann Arbor headquarters.
