Mission of Legacy Donor Foundation


Legacy Donor Foundation was founded in 1999 to save the lives of people waiting for transplants by
encouraging citizens in Louisiana to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors.

Legacy implements comprehensive education programs to help Louisianans understand the critical need for donation and dispel myths and misconceptions. These include partnerships with OMVs, Youth Awareness for high school students and Drivers Education Programs, and more. Legacy collaborates with several statewide agencies with an interest in donation and transplantation to form Donate Life Louisiana – part of a national coalition to increase donor designation rates. With Donate Life Louisiana, we bring a consistent image and message to organ, eye, and tissue donation in Louisiana. When Legacy was founded, there were only 450,000 names on Louisiana’s Organ Donor Registry. Legacy has helped increase the number of names on the registry to over 2.4 million today.
