Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired — Goodwill
The Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired — Goodwill Uses The Raiser’s Edge to Maximize Fundraising Efficiency and Further Its Mission
Since its founding in 1911, the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI) — Goodwill has worked to “prepare and empower people who are blind or visually impaired to be self-sufficient and contribute to their families and communities.” With an emphasis on this mission of empowerment, the Association aids the blind and visually impaired in obtaining the skills and confidence they need to live their lives to the fullest. In 1994, The Association teamed up with Goodwill Industries International; the relationship has enhanced both organizations’ ability to offer employment opportunities for individuals who are blind or visually impaired and has generated vital resources to help fund the the Association mission. Today, ABVI-Goodwill spans nine counties in the state of New York.
