Welcome to BRC of Illinois

 
Donation of all types are what make our society a better place to live.  Donations may range from giving to charities for an endearing cause, donating one's blood for a fellow citizen needing a transfusion and volunteering one's time for the benefit of others. These are all excellent examples of the human spirit in action. Whole body donation to medical education and research can be a lasting and enduring gift to society, as well as future generations.
 

Biological Resource Center offers individuals alternative choices for the preservation of life. In donating one's body for the future of medicine, a lasting gift is born in death. Medical science is advancing at an amazing pace. Life-saving surgical intervention and treatments for diseases may become available, in large part because individuals have donated their body for the advancement of medicine. Biological Resource Center acts as a "bridge" between those individuals who donate their body and the medical research and education community in the United States. 
 

 

 

Biological Resource Center offers to our donors and their families:

  • No cost for the cremation process
  • No cost transportation of the body
  • No cost for the completion and filing of the death certificate
  • No cost for the dignified urn
  • Return of the donor’s cremated remains within 30 days of the donation
