Faith Resources

When a family is faced with losing a loved one, they often reach out to their faith leader for support, spiritual guidance and to ask about their faith’s perspective on organ, eye and tissue donation. When faith leaders encourage their members to learn the facts about donation and to register their donation decision before a family crisis, the burden of making a donation decision is lessened.

To help begin the donation conversation, Lifeline of Ohio can provide congregations with free resources.  We encourage all faith groups to set aside a time to discuss donation whether it be during a health fair, education session, service or the nationally recognized weekend, National Donor Sabbath, held two weekends prior to Thanksgiving each year. Materials, display boards and speakers are available year-round and can be requested at any time. Below are ways your religious organization can begin the donation discussion:
