#GivingTuesday IS #RegisterTuesday - Nov 27th
A fundraising campaign for LOPA.
About This Campaign
As you consider your gift giving this #GivingTuesday, LOPA reminds you that the greatest gift we can give one another is the gift of life through organ and tissue donation.
That’s why our #GivingTuesday is also #RegisterTuesday.
There are over 114,000 people on the national organ waiting list--2,000 of whom are in Louisiana alone. Yet, nearly half of our state’s residents have not registered as donors. Take this opportunity to show your support for organ and tissue donation. Register and help us spread the word that donations don’t always have to be financial. They can be lifesaving!

Campaign to Support 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.
