Who we are, what we do and how you can help!

WHY you should contribute to Sierra Services for the Blind?

  • Your donation will directly benefit a specific human need with in our local community (blind and visually impairment)
  • We are a small, local 100% self-funded non-profit. Your contribution stays local and circulates the community 6 times on average
  • We do not receive any government funding requiring off service management
  • All donations are tax deductible at the State and Federal level

WHAT does your contribution accomplish?

  • Transportation for our clients to and from doctor's visits, pharmacy, peer groups and all of our client related events
  • Education as the individual makes their adjustment to vision loss
  • Socialization for our clients – our peer groups and other events get people with the same disability issues together and out of the house as participating members of our community
  • Provides access for our clients with other programs like the Talking Book system provided by NLS,  California’s CTAP phone program, Meals on Wheels and other local programs
  • Advocacy when they find they are unable to negotiate a personal issue
  • Please see our SERVICES PAGE for more information on what we do

HOW can you contribute?

  • MONETARY DONATIONS - Because we are 100% self-funded, your monetary, tax deductible donations are appreciated. Public support is critical to our program.
  • BECOME A VOLUNTEER DRIVER - We are always in need of volunteer drivers to help get our clients to doctor appointments, peer groups and our other events.
  • ATTEND ONE OF OUR FUNDRAISERS OR BECOME A MEMBER – You can find more information about this by going to our FUNDRAISING/MEMBERSHIP page.
  • DONATE VISUAL AIDS –We have a lending program where we get visual aids into the hands of someone who could use them. CCTV’s, flat screen monitors/TV’s, magnifiers, talking devices, etc.
  • PLANNED GIVING – This type of giving allows the agency a more dependable platform of giving. A tax deductible donation of $100 each month becomes $1,200 a year. Just as $20 a month becomes a $240 in a year. Annual and quarterly donations are also significant. Recognition in Estate Planning is a major contribution which sustains us.
