The mission of the Casey Williams Foundation is to grow awareness and educate community members on the importance of donor registration. Each of our events offers the opportunity to learn more about, or even to register to become a donor through the Illinois Organ/Tissue Donor Registry.

The Organ/Tissue Donor Registry is a confidential computerized database that documents a person’s wishes regarding donation. Information contained in the registry is only released to organ and tissue procurement personnel and medical examiners after all efforts to save a person’s life have failed.

First-Person Consent makes your decision to be an organ/tissue donor legally binding. Additional witnesses or family consent is no longer required; your wishes will be honored.

You may join the First-Person Consent Organ/Tissue Donor Registry by submitting the form at this link, by calling 1-800-210-2106 or by visiting your nearest Secretary of State facility. You may also e-mail an invite to your friends and family to join the registry too.
