HOW TO DONATE
We depend upon the generosity of the community for financial support. Since 1911, our community
has demonstrated its concern for the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired with
its donations of time and dollars. Today, with an increase in the number of people who are visually impaired,
it takes even more financial support for CABVI to assist more than 6,000 persons annually.
We are grateful to our community for this enduring commitment!
As a private, not-for-profit organization, we are not a state or federal agency and
do not directly receive tax dollars. Support for our rehabilitation services typically
comes from annual campaign gifts, fees and third-party payments, bequests, endowment income, and United Way.

TYPES OF GIFTS
Types of Gifts
CABVI conducts an annual campaign to raise operating dollars for the current year.
Gifts of cash contribute important funds to provide rehabilitation, counseling, and information services during this year.
Monthly Gift Program
CABVI also appreciates gifts of stock or other property. Gifts of appreciated stock can result in tax benefits for the donor.
The full fair market value of the stock can be tax-deductible and the donor is not required to pay capital
gains on the donated stock. You can have a monthly donation of $10 or more charged to your Visa or MasterCard.
You may change or cancel your contribution at any time. Charges will be made on the first
of the month. To begin donating through the Monthly Gift Program, or for more information, call 513-221-8558
CABVI also offers honorary and memorial gifts to honor friends for special occasions or
to commemorate friends through a memorial gift.
Double the impact of your gift to CABVI by recommending us for a matching gift
from your employer if they participate in a matching gifts program.
We have a history of excellent service to our community and in order to continue providing professional,
individualized, vision rehabilitation services, we need vital funding support to meet
the growing needs for the present and in the future.
Planned gifts include bequests in a will, charitable trusts, charitable annuities or gifts,
bequests of life insurance, or retirement plan assets. Planned gifts may provide income
and estate tax benefits to the donor. Your attorney, banker, accountant, insurance agent or
financial planner can advise and help with arrangements.
