Kaprielian  0008 MassDOT Registrar Rachel Kaprielian announced that RMV internet customers will now be able to contribute to a new Organ and Tissue Donor Registration Fund when they renew or request a duplicate of their license and Mass ID online.

The Fund created by legislation signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick earlier this year is designed to help increase donor registration rates and build greater awareness of the need for organ and tissue donation.

Even though more than 2.2 million RMV customers are enrolled donors, Massachusetts lags behind a number of other states where more than half of the driving population is registered as organ and tissue donors.

There are 110,000 people nationally and 2,945 in Massachusetts waiting for a life saving organ transplant and another name is added to the waiting list every 11 minutes.

The Fund will be administered by a nine-member Advisory Council to coordinate organ and tissue donation and transplantation in Massachusetts and develop strategies to increase registrations and contributions to the fund.

Over the last two years, MassDOT RMV launched online organ and tissue enrollment as one of 18 new internet transactions available at www.mass.gov/rmv .
