Find your Local Organ Procurement Organization

Organ procurement organizations (OPOs) offer opportunities for volunteering and helping to raise awareness about the importance of registering as a donor. There are 58 OPOs in the United States, each with its own designated service area.

OPOs have two major roles in their service area. They are responsible for:

  1. Increasing the number of registered donors. To encourage donor sign-ups, OPOs may reach out to communities by: sponsoring advertising campaigns; organizing programs in schools, worksites, or faith institutions; sharing print and electronic materials, and more.
     
  2. Coordinating the donation process. When donors become available, representatives from the OPO will evaluate the potential donors, check the deceased’s state donor registry, discuss donation with family members, contact the OPTN computer system that matches donors and recipients, obtain a match list for that specific donor, and arrange for the recovery and transport of donated organs. They also provide bereavement support for donor families and volunteer opportunities for interested individuals.

OPOs employ a variety of staff including procurement coordinators, requestors, donor family specialists, and professionals in public relations communications, and health education, as well as administrative personnel.

OPOs must be certified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and abide by CMS regulations. By federal law, all OPOs must be members of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN). All OPOs are members of the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) HRSA Exit Disclaimer
