Accountable to You

Our 2012 Annual Report is now available. It’s just one more way we’re accountable to you, our community of dedicated donors, sponsors, volunteers, event participants, researchers and individuals and families living with vision loss.

In it you’ll read about the hope your support provides to just three of the 1 million Canadian families living with vision loss. You’ll also find updates from our signature fundraising events: Ride for Sight, Comic Vision, and Cycle for Sight, as well as information on our Vision Quest educational series, and, of course, our audited financial statements.

Your donations supported a total of 23 ongoing research projects across the country in 2012 – over $1.8 million in new Canadian vision research. And thanks to your generosity, Foundation research funding increased 35% in 2012 over 2011.

Our 2012 Annual Report is also an expression of our deep gratitude for your commitment to vision research and our mission to understand, preserve and restore sight.
