About the Campaign

The Hospital Organ Donation Campaign was launched in June 2011 as a special effort of the Workplace Partnership for Life. Through the campaign, organ, eye, and tissue donation organizations work with hospitals to create engaging donation registration drives, social media campaigns, and other events to raise awareness and register donors within the hospital's facilities and local community.

This national campaign was inspired by a very successful donor registration campaign conducted by the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) and the Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA) in 2008 and 2009.

National Donation Campus Challenge

Campus Challenge Partners have helped register more than 131,000 new donors.

Get Involved!

Join or create a Donation Campus Challenge and help save lives.

The success of the 2009 campus campaign generated interest on campuses around the Nation. Many post secondary institutions are continuing - or starting- campus efforts to increase donor registration. We intend to do everything possible to continue and support those efforts. Although there is no 2010 National Donation Campus Challenge, the 2009 campaign information and materials will remain on our Website so that whatever will be helpful to such efforts remains available. Please remember that statistics will very probably require updating. Current statistics can be found at

What is the Campus Challenge?
Launched in 2009, the National Donation Campus Challenge was a campaign to bring together organ and tissue donation organizations and universities, colleges, and other post-secondary campuses to educate campus communities on the critical need for organ and tissue donors and to increase donor registration through statewide donor registries.
  • Campus Challenge campaigns promote and strengthen the spirit of student involvement!
  • College students work together – with their campus communities and with local organ and tissue donation organizations – to spread the word about donation and provide opportunities for students, faculty, administrators, and alumni to register as organ and tissue donors.
