LiveOnNY Foundation is the philanthropic arm of LiveOnNY – one of 58 federally designated organ procurement organizations in the nation responsible for the recovery of organs and tissues for transplantation. Since it’s inception in 1978, LiveOnNY has helped save more than 20,000 lives through organ donation and improved the quality of life for hundreds of thousands more New Yorkers through eye and tissue donation.
LiveONNY Foundation was created in 2016, with funding from “Donate Eight,” an extraordinary group of New Yorkers in the real estate and buildings services industry who committed themselves to raising awareness about organ donation and increasing New York state’s donor registry. Their generosity has enabled the Foundation to begin to realize its mission of awareness and education, research, and services for donor families and transplant patients.
Nearly 10,000 New Yorkers are waiting for a transplant.
