LOPA Donor Memorial Park - Communications Center Campaign

LOPA Donor Memorial Park - Communications Center Campaign

About This Campaign


There is perhaps no greater pain than to lose a loved one or friend, and no matter how hard we try, there are very few ways to console those who have. But sometimes, in these moments of darkness, there is light – and at LOPA, we understand how important this light can be, for both the families of those lost, and for those who receive the gift of life when an organ is donated. Today, we invite you to help ensure that their gift of life is never forgotten, as we work to build a memorial park in their name.

LOPA’s Memorial Park will be located next to our main campus In Covington, Louisiana, just north of New Orleans. Encompassing over 2 acres, it will include trails, water features and memorials. It will serve as a natural haven where families and the community can come in search of support, education and peace. 

Your donation will help lead families down a natural path of healing, lined with the beauty of life and a bit of hope for those grieving – remembering those who left us too soon. Donations to LOPA’s Memorial Park will go towards creating this sanctuary, along with a memorial wall that will contain the etched names of organ and tissue donors. All Louisiana donors are welcome to be included on the wall at the request of their family, friends and loved ones. With your help, we will be able to build a special place for all of Louisiana to physically remember the donors who changed so many lives.

With multiple levels of giving and naming opportunities available, we hope you will join us in building continued awareness of the importance of organ, tissue and eye donation, as well as remembering and celebrating those who have given so much.

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.
