You can honor a special occasion, pay tribute to someone you care about or celebrate the memory of a loved one—while helping blind and visually impaired children and adults discover hope and independence!

Birthdays, anniversaries and graduations are wonderful occasions to honor someone with a tribute gift. Your tribute gift is tax deductible and helps Braille Institute extend its FREE services to the growing number of children and adults who are confronted with sight loss.

Braille Institute will send you an acknowledgement of the gift and we will inform anyone you designate of the tribute gift, without specifying the amount of the gift. For example, if you make a tribute gift in memory of someone, you may wish to have family members notified. If the gift is made in honor of someone, we will notify that individual.

Tribute gifts can be made online, or by phone or mail.

If you would like to have people send donations to Braille Institute in lieu of flowers or gifts, we can send you special envelopes for this purpose.
