11. Who can donate?

Age limits for organ donation no longer exist. Organs have been used from donors in their 90's. However, the general age limit for tissue donation is 70. Organs may be donated from someone as young as a newborn.

Nearly everyone who wants to be a donor can donate at least tissues, if not organs as well. Do not assume that you are not healthy enough to donate; medical staff will do testing at the time of death to make that determination.
