Quotes from our Foundation Board Members

“Joining the Lighthouse has been instrumental in teaching me about challenges that people face, especially those that are visually impaired. I have seen the work that the Lighthouse does, from raising awareness and providing accommodations, to providing work training that allows people who are blind to work and live independently. Being on the Foundation Board has allowed me to serve my community in deeply impactful ways. Working with a traditionally marginalized group and raising awareness for them is so powerful.” – David Kidd, Foundation Board Co-Vice President

“The Lighthouse is something special for the sense of belonging they bring to this community. I am proud and humbled to work on behalf of this organization.” – Meg Fox, Foundation Board Member

“I started volunteering because I was genuinely blown away by how this organization creates employment opportunities for those that would otherwise not be able to find meaningful and sustainable work. The Lighthouse has adapted the manufacturing environment to compliment the needs of their employees, creating an atmosphere of inspiration, teamwork, collaboration and ultimately producing amazing products. The Foundation Board and INL Council give me the platform to tell our community about what this organization does and why it is so vitally important.” – Laura Hard, INL Advisory Council Chair & Foundation Board Member

Partners In Empowerment Donor Wall

February is Low Vision Awareness month, and to celebrate the launch of our Low Vision Clinic & Store, the Lighthouse started its first ever donor wall. The Partners in Empowerment donor wall was created as a tactile celebration of the generosity of our donors to the Low Vision Services program.

Beautiful honeycomb shaped tiles with inscriptions in print and braille create a multicolored mosaic in the Low Vision Store, where visitors can engage with it and be reminded of the support they have in the community.

Opportunities to get on the wall are limited. Make a gift of a certain level during one of our twice-yearly low vision campaigns to join! Email to learn more.

Partners in Empowerment Donor Wall. A dark blue wall with grey, light blue, and purple honeycomb shaped tiles across it.
A close up of purple, light blue, and grey tiles. Each tile lists names written in text and braille.

The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. is incredibly grateful for the donors who have supported employment opportunities and services for individuals who are blind and DeafBlind in our community. Because of each and every one of you, we are able to continue empowering those who are blind, DeafBlind, and blind with other disabilities through diverse, sustainable and meaningful employment opportunities.
