VisionNation Frequently Asked Questions

What is VisionNation?

VisionNation is a special program created by the Foundation Fighting Blindness to empower people who care about ending blindness and restoring sight to create their own campaign to raise essential funds for vital research.

It is about bringing the community together to make treatments and cures possible.

What do I have to do to be a part of VisionNation?

You can participate in two ways:

  1. Become a VisionNation Leader.  It’s easy.  Use our special VisionNation tools to create your personal VisionNation Webpage.  It usually takes only 30 minutes to get everything set up.  Then use email (or Facebook, postal mail of whatever is easiest for you) to ask your friends and family to help you reach your VisionNation goal.  You will receive a VisionNation toolkit that has sample emails, fact and figures, and other items to make asking easy.
  2. Donate to VisionNation.  If you aren’t ready to be a VisionNation Leader, you can make an online donation to help someone else reach his or her VisionNation goal or just a general donation to support the Foundation Fighting Blindness’ work.

What happens to money raised through VisionNation?

All money raised through VisionNation is used to support the Foundation Fighting Blindness’ research and awareness programs.

Is my gift to VisionNation tax-deductible?
