Georgia Gives Day

Georgia Gives Day

As you know, CVI is making a difference every day by empowering people impacted by vision loss to live with independence and dignity. Our donor’s continuous generous support means the world to people who are visually impaired now more than ever.

On Wednesday, November 13th, people across the state will be participating in the annual Georgia Gives Day, a fundraising event to showcase non-profit agencies. Georgia Gives Day is a collaboration of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) in partnership with participating nonprofits. It was created as an opportunity for Georgians to support local causes that are important to them and the Center for the Visually Impaired is participating this year. Donations can be, of course, given throughout the year, but Georgia Gives Day is like a “flashmob of giving” that is both impactful and meaningful.

Join us on November 13 for Georgia Gives Day and help us raise $8,000 for CVI. By making a donation to CVI on Georgia Gives Day, your $10, $25, $50 or $100 gift will help us continue our work in the community. Just visit to make a donation.

Or become a personal fundraiser and advocate for us. Just visit and click BECOME A FUNDRAISER. Determine how much you want to raise on CVI’s behalf and share with your friends through social media. Better yet, find out if the company you work for is interested in participating in a donation match program. The opportunities for you to make yet another impact on CVI are endless.

CVI participated for the first time last year and received over $3,000 in donations. Those donations have allowed us to enhance our services and programs for both visually impaired children and adults. Together, this year, we hope to raise more than $8,000 on Georgia Gives Day and we’re counting on your help!
