Philanthropy - ensuring the full impact of your generosity

Our specialist Philanthropy Team is dedicated to helping you understand the impact your gift could make.

A transformational gift can help change the lives of thousands of blind and partially sighted adults and children, ensuring there are no barriers to a life with sight loss.


Making a significant gift

Together we can inspire and support people with sight loss and transform their lives, the community and ultimately society.  With your donation, no one will be left behind.

There are a variety of ways that you can get involved, including making personal donations. The most effective and immediate way that you can support our work is by gifting by cheque or bank transfer. Gift Aid and Tax Effective Giving can provide additional benefits.

The Armitage Circle

Our vital new initiative builds on RNIB's heritage while responding to the here and now and building for the future. It's a great way to get involved with an organisation that shares your values. As an exclusive giving circle, named for our founder and philanthropist Dr Thomas Rhodes Armitage, The Armitage Circle is a community of donors dedicated to making an impact for the better on the lives of blind and partially sighted people across the UK.

There are two tiers of membership, with associated benefits, and members of the circle get invitations to exclusive events, updates and opportunities to see RNIB's services and operations in action. To find our more, please contact us at [email protected].

As RNIB's Chair of Trustees, Anna Tylor, explains: "Please join us as we create something fantastic so more blind and partially sighted people have the best chance to live the lives we truly want to lead. Together we can transform lives."
