Fort Wayne Chapter
Allie Sarwark, Manager, Chapter Engagement
We are actively recruiting leadership in the Fort Wayne chapter! For more information, please reach out to Allie Sarwark at ASarwark@FightingBlindness.org.
The Strength of the Foundation is Through Our Communities
The Foundation Fighting Blindness Chapter network brings people together across the country to join in fighting blinding retinal diseases. Our family of volunteers and leaders stand up for those impacted by blinding diseases. From day one, they share the latest research and advancements, and provide access to local resources to guide individuals through their personal journey. And together, they celebrate the Foundation’s mission.
We are winning thanks to the dedication of our Chapters focusing on three key areas: education, resources, and revenue. Through informative sessions, Foundation staff, community, and national experts provide research information, low vision resources, and outreach to our local retinal specialists and eye care professionals. To continue accelerating our mission, each community is invited to be a stakeholder by participating in our fundraising events.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness Chapter Vision
Our vision is to bring a community together to end blinding diseases.
