Driver’s License Partners
Nearly all people who register to be a donor do so when they apply for or renew their driver’s license or state ID card. That means that when we work with a grieving family whose loved one has made the decision to be a donor you have helped bring hope and healing to that family and the recipients whose lives will be saved.
Jill’s family has been touched by organ and tissue donation twice – first when her husband, Michael, passed away and again, years later, when her son Shawn died. Jill also works at the Morrison County motor vehicle office, and knows the value of making it easy for customers to document their donation decision.
Materials are available free-of-charge.
We know your customers likely have questions about donation. You may have many of the same questions. These top ten facts about donation answer the most common questions we receive. If you don’t see what you’re looking for here or would like more information, please contact Jessie Fiene.
LifeSource is proud to offer our e-learning course, Donation 101, in response to feedback from driver’s license professionals looking for more information and training about this important aspect of their work. This new training can be completed individually or in a group setting and takes about nine minutes to complete.
We will continue to do in-person training as requested and created this e-learning as an additional resource for you. We greatly appreciate everything you do to help our communities be Minnesota nice and register as an organ, eye and tissue donor.
Driving Hope is LifeSource’s newsletter for Minnesota driver’s license partners. This newsletter will be mailed to offices of all driver’s license partners and posted here a few times a year. This is your resource for the latest data, getting to know fellow driver’s license partners, and for information on changes and upcoming events.
Please let Jessie Fiene know if you have an idea for a newsletter topic or would like to share your story.
Minnesotans can contribute $2 to support education about organ, eye and tissue donation on their driver’s license or state ID application or when they renew they’re motor vehicle registration each year. The money raised supports public education about donation as part of the state’s commitment to ensuring Minnesotans have access to information that allows them to make a positive decision about registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor.
At LifeSource, we’re proud of our long-time partnership with the Department of Public Safety, Driver and Vehicle Services Division, the Minnesota Deputy Registrar’s Association (MDRA) and all of the motor vehicle and driver’s license offices throughout the state. Not only do driver’s license offices help customers who choose to register as a donor, they also offer assistance collecting the $2 contribution that supports public education about organ, eye and tissue donation in Minnesota.
