A commonly asked question about organ and tissue donation is: “Does my religion allow me to be a donor?” The truth is that all major religions in the United States support organ and tissue donation and see it as the final act of love and generosity toward others. See Religious Views.
Mid-South Transplant Foundation recognizes the importance of our partnerships with our religious leaders who play such a crucial role in our communities. Many individuals and families turn to their place of worship for healing, fellowship and spirituality. The clergy is part of the team that works with us in comforting donor families. Clergy are often asked to clarify theological and moral questions the potential donor family may have regarding end of life issues.
We ask our clergy to make a commitment to educate their congregations in partnership with MSTF about the facts concerning donation. Working together we can truly make a difference.
