The Foundation Fighting Blindness is supported by an incredible, nationwide community of fundraisers and volunteers determined to restore sight. From participating in one of our three signature events, to creating and hosting your own unique fundraiser, we encourage anyone interested in supporting research to get involved and help change the future for individuals and families living with vision loss.
Host a Fundraiser
Each year, our dedicated volunteers take a personal passion or a wild idea and turn it into a unique fundraising event in support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness. In the last five years alone, our volunteers have raised over $50,000 to advance sight-saving research.
Are you passionate about organizing your own fundraiser?
Whether it’s a bake sale, a road hockey tournament or a fancy party, we’re here to support you through the process of turning your great idea into a successful fundraiser.
By hosting a fundraiser you will receive:
- A personalized fundraising page
- Helpful resources such as sample templates, letters and sponsorship material
