Is Body Donation to Science Free?

Upon acceptance into the Science Care program, there are no costs associated with your donation. We cover the cost of transportation, cremation, filing the death certificate and permits, and the cost of returning cremated remains to a designated recipient.

Along with nearly all funeral homes and crematories in the U.S., Science Care is a for-profit organization. This allows us to offer body donation and cremation services to donors and families at no cost.
