Auxiliaries support the charitable activities of Braille Institute and its programs, services and regional centers. In addition, auxiliaries heighten community awareness of Braille Institute. 

Along with supporting a worthy cause, auxiliaries foster friendships and a chance to enhance event planning and leadership skills. And, they’re also fun!

There are four auxiliary groups at Braille Institute and each one creates its own dynamic fundraising events. For information on joining, please contact the Braille Institute Auxiliary representative in your area:
