Give Hope. Restore Vision.

When you donate you help restore vision to those who are blind and visually impaired.

When you give to ABVI, you give the gift of independence and confidence to a parent, child, friend or colleague.

Your gift will support a mother, father, daughter or son struggling with vision loss to learn new skills that help them…

  • Best use their remaining vision
  • Address emotional challenges caused by vision loss
  • Continue living independently at home
  • Continue their schooling or employment
  • Travel safely in their home and community

Our clients benefit directly from our generous donors

85.5% of our annual operating budget is dedicated to client programs and services!

Matching Gifts

Many employers match gifts made by their employees, doubling or even tripling your gift. Ask your employer if they match employee gifts. If you would like a representative of ABVI to discuss this option with your employer and/or present our message of service within the community to fellow employees, please call us.

Leave a Legacy

A legacy gift to The Foundation in Support of the Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired (Tax ID 38-3382541) will provide permanent support for services to our clients.
