Last year, despite challenges from the pandemic we still served over 700 children. We need your help to continue our critical work to make a difference in the lives of children with vision loss!

We need our VIPS supporters help more than ever during this uniquely challenging time with the gift of a new donation or pledge, or continuing your existing your support. If you are not a monthly donor--now would be a great time to initiate a monthly gift. The families we serve depend on our teachers and we depend on you to help us in our critical mission to provide early intervention to every child with blindness or low vision.

Take Part in a Global Day of Giving

Are you looking for a nonprofit to support on #GivingTuesday?  Well, if you believe that babies and toddlers who are blind or visually impaired should have developmentally appropriate early intervention specific to their vision loss then consider supporting VIPS Indiana on #GivingTuesday.

It’s that time of year again, #GivingTuesday is right around the corner on November 30th. This is a day of giving that is celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and is a way to show gratitude to the organizations helping the community. VIPS is honored to be a part of a family's journey and would greatly appreciate it if you would help us on Giving Tuesday this year.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to provide vision-specific early intervention to young children who are blind or visually impaired in Indiana. Thanks to the generosity of the Malhotra family, they will be matching up to $5,000 of donations made in honor of Giving Tuesday. That means your donation will have double the impact!

The Malhotra's received services from VIPS between 2012 - 2014 and since then have continued to generously give back each year. They have also spent the past few years ensuring the VIPS Family Resource Center would be built in Indianapolis (grand opening in 2022!) by donating their time and supporting VIPS with over $250,000. They wanted to ensure families like their own would continue to receive the vision-specific intervention that changed their lives.

Would you also like to make an impact on other families of children with visual impairments across Indiana?
Here are ways you can help-

Donate! All funds will go towards ensuring our teachers can continue to travel to the homes of VIPS families.

Start a Facebook Fundraiser! All funds you raise and/or donate through your fundraiser will be matched by the Malhotra family. Starting a Facebook fundraiser is a great way to share your own story of how VIPS has impacted your lives, and it encourages others to support our mission. If all VIPS families started a fundraiser, we would meet our $10,000 goal in no time!

Ask your friends, family, co-workers, etc. to donate to VIPS! The services we provide are critical to the development of the children we serve. The more awareness and funding raised, the greater the impact VIPS can have on this vulnerable population.

Match Dollar for Dollar

Thanks to the generosity of the Malhotra family, they will be matching up to $5,000 of donations made in honor of Giving Tuesday. That means your donation will have double the impact!

You can make a big difference today!
