You can restore hope for people with vision loss. The need is real – and growing. From infants born prematurely to aging baby boomers, record numbers of Georgians struggle with their eyesight. Your financial support has never been more important.
Make a life-long impact. Introduce a toddler to braille, counsel her family and prepare her for kindergarten. Give teens the wisdom of a mentor, a place where they belong, and the knowledge that their dreams can come true. Empower an adult to find a job, take care of his family and use a computer without sight.
Make a gift online or give by mail. You can give in other ways as well – donate stock, properties, securities or include us in your estate plans. Contact Laurie Stephens, CVI’s vice president for development at 404-602-4321.
Share the vision of CVI founders George and Jean Henderson. Membership in the Henderson Society is extended to those who contribute $1,000 or more during the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Your cumulative donation can include matching gifts, United Way designated donations, restricted and unrestricted gifts.
Celebrate CVI with more than 400 True Blue friends during this casual evening of live music, cocktails and great food. Proceeds help people of all ages with vision loss lead a better life.
Legacy gifts help CVI serve future generations. Tailored to the needs of you and your heirs, these gifts also can provide you with income tax savings and in some cases, annual income. Examples include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder or lead trusts, individual retirement accounts, or gifts of life insurance. To initiate a conversation, please call Laurie Stephens, CVI’s vice president for development at 404-602-4321.
Let us know of your planned gift intentions, and become a member of the Mary Ann & Dick Cook Legacy Society created in 2008 to recognize those who have invested in the future of CVI.
