Trusts and Foundations

Trusts and foundations play a crucial role helping bring people together to fight avoidable blindness.

In 2016, with the support of some amazing partners, we were able to fund 24 projects in 12 countries across Asia and Africa. We supported 10.8 million treatments and surgeries and provided 36,733 training sessions for doctors, nurses and community health workers.

Through long-term strategic partnerships with trusts and foundations we are able to outline plans to take on new challenges, push boundaries and make a commitment to reach some of the most vulnerable and under resourced people in the world.

At Orbis we understand that each trust and foundation has different aims and priorities and, as such, our specialist team offers a personal service tailored to help accommodate specific needs and interests.

There are a variety of ways trusts and foundations can help restore vision and eliminate avoidable blindness. Some provide support to specific projects and others give either one-off or annual unrestricted gifts which allow us to use these resources to address the organisation’s priorities at the time.
