NJ Motor Vehicle Commission

Thanks to our partnership with the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC), the number of registered organ and tissue donors in the state is steadily on the rise. All New Jersey Motor Vehicle Agencies (MVA) provide customers with educational materials about organ and tissue donation.

NJ Sharing Network also educates MVC management and staff about why it’s so important to ask customers, “Would you like to register as an organ donor?”

Our volunteers have the opportunity to meet staff at their local agency, update us on supply needs and educate MVC customers about the importance of saying “yes” to donation while at the agency.

Funeral Homes 

At NJ Sharing Network, we work closely with funeral home directors to assure that the wish to make an organ and tissue donation can be fulfilled, while providing a meaningful funeral.
