Ways to Give

Since 1985, EyeCare America has helped over one million individuals across the U.S. However, this represents only a fraction of Americans who desperately need our services.  Our goal is to work toward eliminating avoidable blindness and severe visual impairment and serve as a valued partner in reducing the number of people who needlessly become blind each year. Your support will bring us one step closer to achieving that goal.

Your contribution, no matter the size, can help preserve eye sight. A gift a $25 will allow EyeCare America to assist one person. You can donate online, by mail or by phone.

Tribute and Memorial Gifts
A tribute gift is a donation made in honor of someone who has made a significant contribution — to your life or to eye care. Whether the honoree is your ophthalmologist, spouse, friend, family member, or colleague, a tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor this person. You can make a tribute gift when make your donation. When you make a tribute gift, EyeCare America sends a note of acknowledgement to the honoree (or the honoree's surviving family), so please include the name and address of the person we should notify.
