Individuals may register for whole-body donation prior to death, or a legally-authorized party can register on behalf of an individual at the time of death.
2. Eligibility determination
The Experience Anatomy Foundation will assess a donor candidate for eligibility of whole-body donation at the time of death.
After a candidate has been deemed eligible to participate, the Foundation will coordinate donor transportation from the place of death to the Experience Anatomy facility.
Donors are cared for by the Foundation until they are matched with a research or education program, thus fulfilling the donor’s intent to leave a legacy of learning.
Once research or education study is complete, the Experience Anatomy Foundation will coordinate donor transport for cremation.
Donor ashes are either returned to a designee or spread at sea, and their family receives a letter of appreciation about how their loved one helped to further education and research.
