Organ Donor – Go To The Web Site
Our Work and Mission
Through organ and tissue donation and transplantation,
the New Jersey Organ and Tissue Sharing Network (NJ Sharing Network) saves lives, gives hope, and restores physical function.
NJ Sharing Network is also dedicated to educating the public about the benefits of donation and transplantation and supporting both donor families and transplant recipients.
Who We Are
NJ Sharing Network is a non-profit, federally-certified, state-approved organ procurement organization responsible for the recovery of organs and tissue for the 4,700 New Jersey residents currently awaiting transplantation, and is part of the national recovery system, which is in place for the over 110,000 people on waiting lists.
On June 1, 1987, three New Jersey organ procurement organizations merged into one, and NJ Sharing Network was formed. In November of that year, the state and federal governments passed the Required Request/Assured Option legislation, which requires hospitals to offer the donation option to families of potential donors. Since that time, NJ Sharing Network has set out to educate the general public as to the life-saving benefits of transplantation with the goal of increasing the number of organ donors.
What We Do
Since it was founded, NJ Sharing Network more than quadrupled the total number of organs recovered in New Jersey for transplantation. NJ Sharing Network also recovers tissue for life-enhancing transplants. NJ Sharing Network continues to reach New Jerseyans through educational tools and the media to inform them of the option to donate and of the benefits of transplantation. Having been exposed to this information, New Jerseyans can discuss this issue with their families and make the personal decision to register to be an organ donor.
