Welcome to the Foundation Chapters

Who We Are and What We Do

The Foundation Fighting Blindness is the world’s leading organization committed to finding treatments and cures for the entire spectrum of blinding retinal diseases—including retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, and Usher syndrome.

We are winning thanks to the revenue raised through our Chapter program. The Chapter network has three areas of focus: education, resources, and revenue. Chapters hold seminars and meetings that provide research information, low vision resources, and other industry topics and provide outreach to retinal practices and eye care professionals in local communities. Along with raising revenue through VisionWalks, dinners, Raising Our Sights Do-It-Yourself (DIY) fundraisers, and individual donors, Chapters help accelerate our mission to drive research that will provide preventions, treatments, and cures for people with retinal diseases.
