Legacy Body Donation Program

Honoring your loved one.  An invaluable gift at the time of death.

Facing the death of a loved one raises a range of questions.  From practical concerns to philosophical issues, you have much to consider.  For many people, the option of body donation at death offers a way to honor your loved one.  It allows you to give a priceless gift that helps the community.

Donating a body for medical education is an alternative to burial or cremation that can sometimes ease the financial issues of a loved one's death.  It is a privilege and an honor that we hold in the highest regard.

Advancing medical knowledge

After a family member passes, it is often difficult to understand your options.  Many families like yours chose to help advance medicine through the Legacy Body Donation Program.

A donated body is used for training doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals with new medical procedures and technologies.  They learn techniques that improve care, speed recover, and save lives.  With the help of surgeons who have trained with us, we have been able to develop life-saving techniques.  You can have peace of mind donating to the Legacy Body Donation Program as we maintain the highest ethical standards.  It is a gift that gives for generations.
