eight by fifty initiative

 

One organ, eye and tissue donor can save

eight lives and enhance the lives of 50 others.

 

But this benefit to life wouldn’t be possible without the people and programs that carry on our mission of hope, happiness and healing. Through generous financial gifts, we’re able to grow our community outreach programs, and provide grief support to families whose loved ones gave the gift of life.  We’d like you to join our mission.

A gift for life.

The eight by fifty initiative is our way of honoring those whose lives have been touched by organ, eye and tissue donation, while raising funds to expand our valuable services. Bricks, butterflies and leaves can be purchased to pay tribute to family members, friends or organizations. The personalized bricks will be installed permanently in our Legacy walkway, and the personalized metallic butterflies and leaves will be displayed on our new Legacy Tree in the Lifebanc gardens. 

 

 

 

 

The eight by fifty initiative Logo

The logo you see you on this page is more than just a piece of artwork. The benefits of organ donation are exponential – one organ and tissue donor can save eight lives and help fifty others. This name and logo tell that story. The darkened leaf at the top represents the donor, and the eight surrounding leaves symbolize the eight lives saved. Surrounding that are fifty smaller leaves that signify the lives touched by just one organ and tissue donor.

 

FOREVER GRATEFUL

Paul’s new-found energy and continued love of life would not have been possible without donors and their families “who must love and care in order to give a gift of love and life. There is no way that I can ever repay these families. My prayers include the unknown persons who donated the heart valves that extended my life. I will be forever grateful for these gifts.”"
