With your support, we were able to make our matching grant. Thanks so much to the Reader’s Digest Partners for Sight Foundation for their grant, and thank you so much for your support of America’s blinded veterans!

Any donations over and beyond the match will Fund additional travel to BRCs, or FSP, or other vital programs.

The Blinded Veterans Association (BVA) is an organization of blinded veterans helping blinded veterans. Through our service programs, regional groups, resources, and advocacy before the legislative and executive branches of government, we hope to make life better for blinded veterans. We also hope to be there with encouragement and support. There is no charge for any BVA service and membership is not a prerequisite to obtain help. All legally blinded veterans are also eligible for BVA’s assistance whether they become blind during or after active duty military service. BVA is a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
