Closing the Gap on Donation

Mississippi faith leaders share their experience with and support of organ, eye, and tissue donation.

More than 1,300 Mississippians are on the waiting list for a life-saving transplant. 70% of those waiting are African American. However, only 20% of registered organ, eye, and tissue donors in Mississippi are African American.

Let’s close the gap by increasing awareness of the need for donation within our communities, having the conversation about donation with our loved ones, and by registering as an organ, eye, and tissue donor.
