Take part in our first-ever VIPS Day of Giving!

Exciting news! We have loved participating in the various giving days each year: Kentucky Gives Day, Give for Good Louisville, and Giving Tuesday, however, we are thrilled to announce that VIPS will instead celebrate our VERY OWN giving day each June! 

Join us on June 21, 2024, for our first-ever VIPS Day of Giving! We chose June because Helen Keller's birthday month is June and every day, our own Annie Sullivan's, the VIPS teachers and interventionists, are creating lasting change through the critical early intervention services and educational support they provide to children in need across Kentucky and Indiana. Through this new effort, we want to celebrate the amazing families we serve, our dedicated staff, irreplaceable volunteers, and treasured donors. It will be a meaningful day and we hope you will be a part of it with us.

We have a $40,000 goal and the funds we raise on this special day will directly impact the lives of Kentucky and Indiana’s youngest children who are blind or visually impaired. You can help by donating, sharing our social media posts, forwarding our emails, starting a Facebook/Instagram fundraiser, and encouraging your friends and family to make a gift!

Also, during the VIPS Day of Giving, we plan to host on-site volunteers, give tours, and open our facilities in Indiana and Kentucky to VIPS families for free play and connection time. We want this day to not only be about FUND-raising, but FUN-raising!
