Are you looking to make an impact by Giving Sight?
There are several ways that you can help.
For as little as $1 per day, or $30 per month, you can make a powerful, ongoing commitment to help people in need of vision care!
Ongoing support through monthly donations allows Optometry Giving Sight to plan for the future, make long-term commitments to vision care projects, and maximize funds applied to projects. For many of our donors, it’s simply the quickest and most efficient way of showing their support.
