Making a significant gift

Together we can inspire and support people with sight loss to transform their lives, the community and 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.
