The Gibney Family Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation partners with others to develop sustainable resources for organizations that foster independence, primarily for those who are blind. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on projects and programs that empower those who are challenged, especially the blind, in their quest to live happier, more productive lives. Grants are awarded to organizations serving those who are blind and visually impaired, organizations serving other specially challenged populations, and organizations in selected geographic areas. Eligible geographic areas are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, upstate New York, Oregon, Vermont, Utah, and Washington. While the Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant proposals, it invites those organizations that might fall under the Foundation guidelines to e-mail a letter of introduction to firstname.lastname@example.org to introduce them. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
