Donate Life license plate
Michigan's new Donate Life license plate is available at Secretary of State branch offices. The plate costs $35 and then $10 for the annual renewal. Money from plate sales go back to the Secretary of State to cover costs of promoting donation statewide. Since it became available in August 2012, more than 2,000 have been sold. Another 500 must be purchased each year for it to continue. Click here to order a Donate Life plate.
Gift of Life Michigan relies heavily on its partners in the business world, in education, in faith-based insitutions and in the community to help spread the message that donation saves lives. Through donor drives, marketing campaigns and grass-roots participation, our partners motivate others to join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.
How your company or organization can save lives
Companies and organizations have a unique opportunity to support donation through the Workplace Partnership for Life. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created the three-phase program so companies of every size can participate. Workplace partners in Michigan are able to use national materials from HHS and also are encouraged to contact Gift of Life to obtain Michigan Organ Donor Registry sign up materials and other marketing tools. In addition, organ and tissue recipients are available to talk to and inspire your employees.
How your campus can save lives
Gift of Life Michigan works closely with colleges and universities to promote organ, tissue and eye donation. Campaigns can occur any time of year, but two of the biggest donor drives are the Campus Challenge, which is a competition every January and February among Michigan schools, and the Wolverine-Buckeye Challenge for Life, which is a contest every fall between Michigan and Ohio.
