The Jacksonville Transplant Alliance is a community of individuals and transplant-related organizations in the Northeast Florida area who are dedicated to supporting area transplant patients and providing donor education to those in our community.
The State of Florida will begin making the Donate Life specialty license plates if, and only if 3,000 vouchers are sold by October, 2022. These specialty plates make it easy to promote organ, tissue, and eye donation every time you're heading to work, going shopping, or whenever you're out! Please order yours today. The cost is just $32.50 if order online.
Sales of these plates benefit Donate Life Florida, the state organization that manages our organ, tissue, and eye donor registry. Donate Life Florida's mission is to educate Floridians about donation and encourage them to register as organ, tissue and eye donors.
Getting a voucher for the new Donate Life license plate is easy. You can purchase a voucher online through the St. Lucie County tax collector’s office. You don't have to live St. Lucie county to purchase the voucher online.
Vouchers can also be purchased at any tax collector's office in person. Many offices are taking customers via appointment only, so please check with the offices in your county for the rules: www.FLHSMV.gov/locations.
Additional information on the plate and voucher process is on the Donate Life Florida website at DonateLifeFlorida.org.
Here are a few things to know:

With great precaution and concern for our transplant patients and others who may be immunocompromised, the JTA Board of Directors has again decided to cancel the Gift of Life Celebration due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19 and its many variants.
As in past years, the health and safety of our attendees is of foremost importance, and putting anyone at risk is simply not an option. If we cannot hold a safe event for everyone, we will not hold an event.
LifeQuest, however, will once again host their Tribute to Life as a virtual event at Christ Episcopal Church in Ponte Vedra Beach. The event date is Friday, October 21, 2022. Please attend their event online if you can. More information is available on LifeQuest's website.
We once again hope for better circumstances next year. Watch for details here on our website and of course, we will keep our Facebook page updated. As always, please stay safe and stay well, everyone.
Signing up on your state registry means that someday you could save up tp 8 lives as an organ donor by giving the Gift of Life. When you register, most states let you choose what organs and tissues you want to donate, and you can update your status at any time.
Florida residents, you can register online to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org.
If you're a U.S. resident outside Florida, you can locate your state's donor registry at OrganDonor.gov.
At any time, you can change your registration. Whether it's your contact information or your choice of organs or tissue to donate, Donate Life America offers a convenient way to edit your registration.
