Trusts and Foundations

Thank you to our supporting funders

Living without vision can turn your life upside down. It is thanks to our funders that much of our work is possible and we can help Kiwis adapt to life without sight. Whether it’s providing emotional support, learning to get around, technology, education or employment – all of these bring confidence and freedom to blind, deafblind and low vision Kiwis.
