LOPA’s core purpose is to “Make Life Happen”. To accomplish our core purpose, we save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Encouraging and facilitating the use of recovered organs and tissues for medical research aids our core purpose greatly. Our hope is that by offering the option of donation for research, in addition to donation for the purpose of transplantation, our donors will not only leave a legacy of saving and healing lives; but also, they will build a legacy where medical knowledge is propelled forward through their gifts.
