Sierra Donor Services (SDS) is the nonprofit, organ, eye and tissue transplant donor network serving nearly four million people in Northern California and Nevada. We are committed to saving and improving lives by connecting one life to another through donation and transplantation. We support potential donor families in their time of loss, provide care for them through the donation process and coordinate the recovery of organs and tissues for transplant. We also provide after-care support to donor families while at the same time working to inspire universal acceptance of donation to ensure every person in need receives the “Gift of Life.”
Additionally, SDS works on public education efforts, with a strong emphasis on encouraging residents to sign up with their state organ and tissue donor registry. Anyone can join the Donate Life America Official Registry, their state registry (California), or at the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
