LOCAL PHILANTHROPISTS MAKE IT ALL POSSIBLE!

“I am a firm believer in turning challenges into possibilities, so I am happy knowing my gift will help more people overcome the challenges of blindness.”

—Arthur S., Braille Institute Donor

You don’t need to have a visual impairment to want to help people with sight loss. With the help of our many donors, Braille Institute Los Angeles continues to provide free programs and services for people of all ages living with vision loss.

Since our founding in 1919, bequests have been a key to our financial well-being. Through the years, countless friends, volunteers, students and patrons have chosen to use bequests as a meaningful way of permanently contributing to the significant work of Braille Institute.

To talk about donation opportunities specific to Braille Institute Los Angeles, or for a free booklet covering the details of bequests and other ways to give please contact, Cindy Chan,  our Director of Philanthropy, Planned Giving and Major Gifts at (323) 906-3172, or visit Ways To Give.
