Honoring Your Loved One
"It is so unique to become an organ donor. The fact that Dan was able to do that helped our family to heal."
Jane Buckiewicz - Mother of Organ and Tissue Donor, Dan Buckiewicz
Every year, thousands of lives are saved as a result of the generosity of donors and families like yours.

Wall of Remembrance
Every organ and tissue donor's first name and last initial is etched on our Wall of Remembrance in their honor. Please call us to schedule a private tour to see your loved one's name.
Quilts of Love
Our Quilts of Love honor the memory of donors and serve as gentle reminders of the many lives touched by donation and transplantation. You are invited to participate by creating a tribute square in memory of your loved one.
5K Celebration of Life
Thousands of participants, representing donor families, recipients, volunteers, community groups, and corporate and hospital partners, come together at our 5K Celebration of Life to honor those who gave, pay tribute to those who received, offer hope to those who continue to wait, and remember the lives lost while waiting... for the gift of life.
Continue to honor your loved one by advocating within your community. Our volunteers share a special bond with our organization, and many have connections to donation or transplantation. Many families find comfort in sharing their personal experience, and meeting other donor families.

Our Landscape of Life Wall depicts life through a window overlooking a swaying tree in bloom surrounded by butterflies in flight. This special place honors our organ and tissue donors and also acknowledges gifts received by our Foundation in their honor.
Landscape of Life Meditation Garden
Our 8,200-square-foot perennial garden was created to honor those who gave, pay tribute to those who received, offer hope to those who continue to wait and remember the lives lost while waiting for...the gift of life.
