Donor Memorial Expansion Project

Lifeline of Ohio’s Donor Memorial is a place of remembrance and reverence to recognize the heroes of organ, eye and tissue donation. In 2023 a Donor Memorial Expansion Project will begin and we ask for your support.

Your funds will help us to honor thousands of more donors through our Donor Memorial and create a space of remembrance for the families of those donors.

The goal of this campaign is to raise $300,000. The funds donated to this campaign will help offset the total cost of the expansion while supporting the addition of new features that make this a special space for donor families such as a wind chime installment and Remembrance Wall.
