You Can Make a Difference

Thank you for considering a donation to Second Sense.  Your gift will help our programs reach those who need our services the most.  Only a portion of Second Sense’s annual budget is covered through corporate giving, foundation grants and government support.  We rely on your contributions to enable us to provide our training to anyone who walks through our door at no cost to them.

Every Dollar Counts

Your contribution will give adults with vision loss hope, provide them with new confidence and skills and equip them with the tools and training that will help them realize their goals.  Each year, our staff of six professionals works with a group of dedicated volunteers to provide direct services to adults throughout the Chicago area. To see what how many people our donors help us reach, read about our service numbers.

Donors will receive Second Sense’s newsletter, Perspectives, to learn how their investment is reaching adults with vision loss and changing their lives.
