KY Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust for Life
The KY Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust For Life is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to educating Kentuckians about the life-saving mission of organ donation, just like KODA.
In 1992, the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks successfully sponsored legislation through the Kentucky General Assembly that afforded every Kentuckian obtaining a driver’s license or ID an opportunity to donate $1.00 to promote organ & tissue donation. These dollar donations were put into a Trust. The Circuit Clerks called it their Trust For Life.
In 2006, the Trust For Life was one of the organizations that encouraged the Kentucky Legislature to pass HB57, setting up the new Kentucky Organ Donor Registry. It was named to a coalition that includes the Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services, Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) and other organizations, to create the statewide, confidential registry of people who wish to help others through organ & tissue donation. Since 2006, over 1.7 million Kentuckians have placed their name on the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry. To add your name to the Registry, go to www.donatelifeky.org
At the end of 2016, the two organizations formed a cohesive statewide Community Outreach team that educates both County Elected Circuit Court Clerks, their staff as well as their surrounding communities.
