Memorial Wall & Benches
The Healing Garden is a unique and sacred space at our River Road Headquarters. Created in recognition of organ, eye and tissue donors and their families, the Healing Garden serves as a peaceful and reflective community gathering space along the beautiful Mississippi River.
You may choose to have a donor’s name engraved on the Memorial Wall or on a Garden Bench. Your contribution will support donor family services and education and outreach to increase the number of registered donors in our communities.
LifeSource is a nonprofit organization and your financial contribution in support of the Memorial Wall or Garden Benches is entirely tax deductible.
Memorial Wall Dedication
Remember a donor by having their name inscribed on the Memorial Wall in recognition of their selfless gift. The names engraved on the Memorial Wall will exclusively honor donors who gave the gift of organ, eye or tissue donation.
Names are added to the Memorial Wall annually in early May. For inclusion in the 2020 engraving, please make your gift on or before April 15, 2020. You will be asked to provide / verify the name as it should appear on the wall.
Garden Bench Dedication
Your gift of a bench dedication may include up to three lines of text and serves to support the Healing Garden, building a tradition of appreciation and support.
Contribution: $2,500 per bench | Dedicate a garden bench
Engage family and friends
Invite your family and friends to join you in making a contribution towards an engraving on the Memorial Wall or Bench. Cumulative gifts of family and friends can be applied to the inscription of a donor name on the memorial wall. Gifts should include the name of the individual to be honored.
