In brief: A Legal Adult
Usually a potential donor needs to be over age 18, the age of legal consent.
In actuality, the number of donors under age 21 is small. However, screening young living donors is a very careful process that involves medical, social service, and at times psychology and even ethical professionals to ensure donor consent is appropriate.
