Thank You

A Special Thanks to the Northwest Lions Foundation for Sight & Hearing for their generous grant to the Edith Bishel Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired

This grant provided funds for all new computers for every office staff member. All of the old computers were very outdated, falling apart and no longer meeting the growth needs of the Center. The new computers have allowed us to be more effective and efficient in our daily use to meet the information and practical needs of our clients.

The Edith Bishel Center is so thankful for the continued partnership with the Northwest Lions Foundation for Sight & Hearing!

Visionary Partner Program

 

As a nonprofit organization, there are many needs, yet, dwindling sources of funding. There is no “quick fix” to this issue, but rather the joint effort of many people giving something large or small so that the growing impact that the Edith Bishel Center is having on the visually impaired and blind community can continue and grow.

I am excited to introduce a new way to support our local community of people with blindness and vision loss: the “Visionary Partner” Program. Individuals like you can schedule a small monthly donation that will make a large difference in the life of someone who is blind or visually impaired. Your monthly gift will provide a reliable source of funding to support life-changing services offered by Edith Bishel Center.
