Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center makes a significant difference in the lives of children, teens, adults and seniors affected by vision loss. We are thankful to the businesses, foundations, churches and community-based organizations that make an impact in their lives each day. From event sponsorships, partnership packages, fundraising events and in-kind donations – there are many ways for businesses to support the Lighthouse.

As a Corporate Partner, you have the opportunity to invest and strengthen the lives of the blind and visually impaired in our communities including Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, DeSoto and Highlands counties.

Lighthouse invites businesses to partner with us by making a philanthropic gift to help sustain our programs and services that are provided at NO COST to individuals that we serve.
