Why Give to BlindSight Delaware
Vison loss can happen gradually or in a blink of an eye. No matter how vision loss occurs, it can be scary. Your donation will help those with vision loss gain confidence and independence through Peer Support, through Specialty Resources through Recording Services, through Program Services and through Camp Sunnybrook. Because of your donation, people with vision loss can see that their future is bright.

Ways to Give
- Impact- Program Partners
Make the largest impact to BlindSight Delaware by becoming a Program Partner. Your donation will enhance life for the visually impaired. As a program partner your donation will provide our members a place to network and navigate the world with confidence. Your donation will fund ongoing services such as peer support, activities, recordings of local news, and adaptive devices to help visually impaired people to live independently, and door-to-door transportation (one of the largest barriers when serving the visually impaired community).
- Sunnybrook Smiles
Your donation to Sunnybrook Smiles allows visually impaired children to attend the only summer camp that is designed specifically to meet the needs of children with vision loss. Your financial support will help fund, program supplies, facilitator & field trip fees, transportation, staffing, pool expenses and much more.
- Leave your Legacy!
Since 1909 BlindSight Delaware has been dedicated to enhancing life for the visually impaired. Your donation will assure we can continue to achieve our mission for decades to come. We know each gift whether it is naming us in your will or trust, providing for us through your life insurance or through your retirement fund can seem complex so please give us a call at (888) 777-3925 and we can discuss legacy gift options that are right for you.
- In Honor – Memorial Giving
Do you want to honor someone special? Your donation can be a very thoughtful way to honor someone who has been impacted by vision loss or someone you care for. A special card will be sent to the honoree or family acknowledging your gift.
- Double your Donation (Corporate Matching)
Many employers (examples include JPMorgan Chase & Co., Capital One, Johnson Controls and many more) offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Companies want to support the nonprofit organizations that serve in the area that they live, work and play..
Contact your human resources department to see if your employer has a matching gifts program and to obtain the matching gift forms or electronic filing instructions.
Complete the forms and submit them as directed to BlindSight Delaware. We will certify your donation and forward information to your employer. Your employer verifies your eligibility and ensures that BlindSight Delaware has met their requirements. Your employer then sends a matching gift to us. We immediately acknowledge your employer for the matching donation and send you an acknowledgement as well.
It might not be too late
Did you send in your donation without a matching gift? It might not be too late – check with your human resources department to learn more about the filing deadlines.
