Donor Family Tribute

Each year, across the country, thousands of men, women and children receive a renewed opportunity for life and good health because someone made the decision to donate. We honor, celebrate and recognize donor families and their loved ones for their enormous faith, generosity and courage during our annual Donor Family Tribute ceremonies.

What is a Donor Family Tribute?

Our Donor Family Tribute is an opportunity for you to honor your loved one who was an organ or tissue donor. You will hear some words from grateful recipient speakers and Carolina Donor Services staff. There will also be an opportunity for you to view the donor tribute slideshow and donor quilts.

The date and time of the 2021 Donor Family Tribute are to be determined.

Create Your Quilt Square

Each year donor families are invited to prepare a quilt square in honor of their loved one. Your quilt square, combined with those of other donor families, will be assembled to make a donor family quilt. These quilts are displayed at memorial services, special events and educational programs across North Carolina. If you would like for your loved one's quilt square to be included in our next quilts to be created, please mail it to our office.
