Mission Statement

Legacy Donor Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) organization that is dedicated to raising public awareness and education about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation in Louisiana. Legacy is the only organization in the State of Louisiana that solely dedicated to growing the state registry. Since this is our only focus we are dedicated to effectively growing the registry through our state wide educational and advocacy programs.

Description

When Legacy Donor Foundation was founded in 1999, there were only 450,00 names on Louisiana’s Organ, Eye and Tissue Donor Registry. Today, due to strong marketing and public relations campaigns and comprehensive education programs, the registry has grown to over 2.5 million names. While we are making progress, there is still a long way to go.

Currently in Louisiana, there are 1,772 people waiting for life-saving organ transplants. Each registered organ, eye and tissue donor has the potential to save 9 lives through organ donation, restore sight to 2 people through cornea donation and enhance the lives of up to 75 people through tissue donation.

YOU can help save lives. YOU are the answer!
