Campaign to Support LOPA Foundation

About the LOPA Foundation: With a core purpose of Working for Hope, Working in Honor and Working to Heal, the LOPA Foundation solicits and receives donations to support LOPA’s efforts to educate and celebrate the everlasting gift of organ and tissue donation.  Gifts made to the LOPA Foundation help increase LOPA’s capacity and honor the thousands of Louisianians impacted by donation each year. The LOPA Foundation has been designated as a 501(c)3 charitable and tax-exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service and is treated by the IRS as a supporting foundation to LOPA.

About LOPA: Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) was established on April 1, 1988 as an independent, not-for-profit organ and tissue recovery agency. LOPA is federally designated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid as the organ procurement organization (OPO) responsible for servicing the state of Louisiana. LOPA is tasked with two main objectives; housing and maintaining the Louisiana Donor Registry, and recovering organs and tissue for transplant. LOPA partners with professionals throughout the state, including eye banks and all hospitals within Louisiana, to accomplish its life saving and enhancing goals. Education is key to this process, and our staff offers a variety of educational opportunities for the public and professionals within our state.
