How We Help
It is our purpose to support low vision persons by providing products and services to support them in living inclusive and normal lives.
The Foundation will provide financial assistance in the form of a grant to qualified Canadian low vision individuals. Low vision and financial need are always a requirement. We will work with low vision individuals and the organizations supporting them to negotiate a positive outcome. The amount of grant varies according to the circumstances and is determined on a case by case basis. We will provide up to 50% of the cost of the innovative (‘hi-tech’) vision improvement product including eyewear and computer programs.
To start the process, the Foundation accepts and considers application forms from individuals seeking support. The Foundation’s Grant Program Committee considers applications received and we encourage individuals and the organizations supporting them to submit an online grant application form through this site. We review the site regularly and will respond to your inquiry within 3-5 business days. Our Grant Program Committee reviews applications and aims to provide applicants with a grant decision within 30 days of receipt of a completed grant application.
Donors may also access our Donor page and make an online donation.
