We could not have done it without your help!

The Goradia Family Foundation

Thanks to the generosity of the Goradia Foundation, all philanthropic gifts made to support SightLife’s India Eye Bank Development program will be matched up to $6 million. That means your impact will be doubled as we work toward raising $30 million, which will ensure that all corneal blind patients in India can see the world through new eyes.


The Visionary Circle


By making a gift of $1,000 or more to eliminate corneal blindness, you become a member of SightLife’s Visionary Circle. Your generosity will provide vital resources for growing eye banks, accelerating the rate at which they can treat those in need. Your major gift will also send a strong message of support to corneal blind patients that a brighter future is on the horizon.

In recognition and appreciation of your standing as a member of SightLife’s Visionary Circle, you will receive the following benefits:

  • Invitation to a special Visionary Circle Celebration of Giving even in the spring
  • Opportunity to attend invitation-only lunch Q&A sessions with SightLife’s CEO, Monty Montoya, throughout the year
  • Regular updates on the impact your gift is having via e-news, blog, newsletters, and from-the-field messages from India
  • Recognition of your gift proudly displayed on the SightLife Wall of Honor, in the organization’s annual report, and on the website
  • Ultimately, the profound satisfaction of helping millions see the world through new eyes!

For more information, or to discuss a gift, please contact Dan Johnson, SightLife’s Director of Development, at 206.838.4642 or dan.johnson@sightlife.org.
