In brief: Donor family
A Decision to donate organs is up to the deceased (if they signed up to be an organ donor) or to the next-of-kin (if the deceased is not an registered organ donor).
We (the society) all owe the donor families a great deal of gratitude and the best way for organ recipients to "pay" them back is by taking care of the donated organs.
