Let's SEE what we can do together!
We encourage businesses, communities, groups, neighbourhoods, families and friends to plan and run events whose proceeds will help us fight blindness by supporting our programs and services.
View our Fundraising Toolkit to get started.
Here are some important guidelines to follow when planning your event:
1) Download and complete our Event Application Form and submit it to Operation Eyesight prior to the planning of your event.
2) All events in support of Operation Eyesight must be approved in advance by Operation Eyesight. This is an important safeguard to preserve the integrity of the Operation Eyesight name and our commitment to raise the funds necessary to fulfill our mission in a cost-efficient and effective manner.
3) We will review your submission and do our best to contact you within approximately seven working days. We can provide guidance for your event, however, we do not have the personnel to handle the organizational and administrative tasks associated with third-party events. Therefore, you are responsible for all details of the event including: underwriting all of the related costs; recruiting volunteers to help out at the event; creating flyers to publicize the event; and working at the actual event.
Thank you in advance for your passion and commitment to give the poorest people the gift of sight.
If you have questions about organizing a fundraising event in support of Operation Eyesight, call our Philanthropy Department at 1-800-585-8265 or email us.
