Your connection to donation in the Upper Midwest
Winter 2019
1989 - 2019
Honoring 30 Years of Saving Lives
In 1989, LifeSource was born. A generation later, we're tirelessly working toward the same mission of saving lives and offering hope and healing through excellence in organ, eye and tissue donation. While our steadfast focus on the mission has remained the same, our team has grown, our programs have expanded and our technology has sharpened - impacting more lives than ever before.
Record Year
2018 Numbers Illustrate Impact
For the sixth year in a row, the United States set a record for the number of deceased organ donors in 2018. LifeSource is among 41 of the 58 organ procurement organizations who tied or set new records for the number of generous individuals who said yes to donation.
Paying it forward
External Events Raise Funds and Awareness
In 2018, families and friends of donors and transplant recipients hosted external events to raise awareness about the importance of donation through unique events held in communities across the Upper Midwest. While each event maintains its own character, they share their stories to honor their loved one or their loved one's donor, inspire others to register as donors, and raise funds to help continue critical LifeSource programs.
Advocating for Donation and Transplant
Donate Life Day at the Minnesota Capitol
On February 5th, LifeSource ambassadors, team members and board members rallied at the Minnesota State Capitol in support of organ, eye and tissue donation. It was an opportunity to thank our elected officials for their long history of bipartisan support of donation in the state. Currently, 67% of Minnesotans are registered donors.
