CNIB Foundation

Social Service


The CNIB Foundation is a non-profit organization driven to change what it is to be blind today. We deliver innovative programs and powerful advocacy that empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion. Our work as a blind foundation is powered by a network of volunteers, donors, and partners from coast to coast to coast.

In response to COVID-19, the CNIB Foundation has expanded its virtual program offerings across Canada. These programs are free and available to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted as well as their families, friends, and caregivers.

Our Impact

For the CNIB Foundation, a legacy gift will help us to build a new future for Canadians with sight loss. These gifts are vital to the work we do, both today and in the years to come, as it allows us to provide a wide range of life-changing programs that will help people who are blind or partially sighted achieve their personal goals and smash through barriers that stand in their way.



How your gift will be used

With a legacy gift, you will be helping us create a positive change for all Canadians with sight loss that allows them to participate fully in life, the community, and the economy. You’ll be making a lasting difference throughout a lifetime by giving children the building blocks for a bright and successful future; empowering youth with the confidence to be the proud leaders of tomorrow; giving adults the tools to reach their career dreams; and providing seniors with the support they need to lead full, active lives with sight loss.
