Give the Gift of Sight in Your Will

By leaving a gift to Orbis in your will, you’ll leave a lasting legacy of sight for thousands of people all over the world. But it's about even more than helping people see. Your gift will empower people with the ability to go to school, get an education, work to earn a living, live independently, and escape a life of poverty for a better future.

A charitable bequest made through your will allows you to leave a larger gift to Orbis than would be possible during your lifetime – it's a simple yet powerful way of giving. In your will, you can choose to leave Orbis a specific piece of property, stock, securities, cash or a percentage of your estate. By planning now, you can leave a lasting legacy for the future.
