The Donor Memorial was created to honor donors and their generous “Gift of Life” to others. The Memorial serves as a tribute to all who have helped others through donation and transplantation. The Donor Memorial was dedicated in Spring 2009, and is located on the grounds of the Capitol Monument Park, directly adjacent to the State Capitol in Frankfort, Kentucky.

The Donor Memorial encompasses the bronze “Gift of Life” donor medal, designed by the Gift of Life Donor Program in Philadelphia. The medal depicts the many gifts that one person is able to give to others through donation. The medal is mounted on a 7 foot granite monolith, with an inscription describing those touched by the generosity of every donor. Two granite benches are on either side of the memorial, providing a place for reflection for donor families and others.

The Donor Memorial was dedicated to donors and their families by the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates and the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks Trust For Life. Donor families and friends, as well as visitors to the state capital, can visit the memorial at any time, and be reminded of the precious “Gift of Life” and the ability to help others through donation.
