Writing to Your Loved One's Recipients
OneLegacy facilitates donation only in the following California counties: Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, Ventura, Santa Barbara, or Kern county. Not all recipients transplanted within these counties received their organ, corneas or tissues from a OneLegacy Donor. OneLegacy can only process requests to meet or contact whole organ recipients from donor families whose loved one donated through OneLegacy.
Disclaimer: This request can only be processed if requested by the legal next of kin (LNOK) or authorizing or acknowledging party (AP) of the donor or a person designated by the LNOK/AP to do so. If a request is made by anyone else, OneLegacy will contact the LNOK or AP to verify if their permission is given to provide an update to any person who is not the LNOK/AP.
Guidelines on Writing to Transplant Recipients: Please click HERE to review the guidelines on how to write your loved one's recipients before submitting your request. Please note that at this time we are only able to forward letters to whole organ recipeints (i.e, recipients of heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, and/or small intestine). We apologize that we are unable to forward letters to or arrangement meetings with cornea or tissue recipients (bone, skin, heart valves, ligaments, cornea/eye, or veins) at this time due to privacy health laws

The following information will be for internal use only. This information will not be shared with the recipient until we review the benefits and considerations for direct contact with both parties and obtain authorization to release direct contact information.
