Giving at the Carroll Center

The Carroll Center for the Blind has been a pioneer in vision rehabilitation since 1936. Through the generosity of our donors, we can offer programs to clients of all ages and all stages of vision loss and do not turn anyone away who cannot afford to pay. Your support of the rehabilitative work we do makes a world of difference. We invite you to discover how you can make an impact on the lives of students today and tomorrow.
