Make a donation
ECVI does not charge for our services and depends on community support. That's why your donation to ECVI can make a significant impact on the lives of visually impaired individuals. By contributing to our programs and supporting our students, you are helping to ensure that those with visual impairments have the resources they need to navigate daily life. Donating is simple and easy, and your gift can truly make a difference.
Did you know that if you’re over 70 ½ and own an IRA, you can make qualified distribution donations to ECVI? Did you also know that planned giving is a great way to leave a lasting legacy by supporting the visually impaired? At ECVI, we understand the importance of supporting your philanthropic efforts. That's why we offer a variety of resources to help you make an impact on students. We're committed to helping you achieve your philanthropic goals, and we're excited to share that donating your unused retirement assets can be an excellent way to contribute! You can make a significant difference while also potentially benefiting from tax advantages.
