Give Through Your Foundation

Foundations play a crucial role in helping Orbis bring people together to fight avoidable blindness.

In 2018, with the support of some amazing partners, we were able to deliver 63,000 trainings for eye care practitioners. Through long-term strategic partnerships with foundations, we are able to take on new challenges, push boundaries and reach some of the most vulnerable and under-resourced people in the world.

There are a variety of ways foundations can help us to restore vision and eliminate avoidable blindness. Some provide support to specific projects or regions, while others make unrestricted gifts which allow us to address the most pressing needs.

Your gift will support our work around the world, including our country offices and hospital-based programs, our expanding telehealth initiatives, and the innovative work being done aboard the Flying Eye Hospital.
