About Lois Pope, The Lois Pope LIFE Foundation, Inc., & LIFE (Leaders in Furthering Education)
As one of America’s leading philanthropists, Lois Pope has positively impacted the lives of individuals at the local, national, and international levels. She has established three different organizations dedicated to helping those in need. These organizations are the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation, Inc., Leaders In Furthering Education (LIFE), and the Disabled Veterans’ Life Memorial Foundation. Over the last 20 years she has been the driving force behind the Lois Pope LIFE Center at the University of Miami School of Medicine, The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, a summer camp program serving thousands of underprivileged children, and groundbreaking programs with American Humane. Lois Pope has donated three Lois Pope Red Star Vehicles. Each rescue vehicle is a 50-foot-long response unit, complete with a Ford F-350 truck and trailer, which is specifically designed and outfitted to provide an array of emergency services within the region. She has also produced two documentaries with award-winning director Ric Burns highlighting the plight of disabled veterans in our country, Debt of Honor and VA: THE HUMAN COST OF WAR. Further honoring our veterans and thanks Mrs. Pope’s advocacy, October 5 was declared an appropriate national day each year to honor American Veterans Disabled for Life. The day was authorized late last year through a resolution introduced in Congress by Rep. Lois Frankel and included in a veterans’ health bill sponsored by Rep. Jeff Miller and Sen. Richard Blumenthal. We will observe the inaugural commemoration this coming October 5 at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington DC.
