OGS Awards $50,000 in COVID Relief Funds to 12 North American Charities

In an effort to support North American organizations and to further enhance their national presence, Optometry Giving Sight (OGS) awarded 12 organizations with grants up to $5,000. The funding will support their work in providing eye exams and glasses to individuals in underrepresented communities, special project funding to build sustainable vision care efforts, and opportunities to provide diversity and inclusion training to staff, volunteers and board members.

“I am grateful that we were able to provide funding to such a diverse group of worthwhile organizations who are doing critical work within their communities,” says Anne Marie Hand, Executive Director of OGS who started in June. “It was a quick turnaround and I’m so appreciative that my team and our Board of Directors supported this endeavor,” she added.

The Vision Institute of Canada plans on using their award to purchase new equipment. “The Pachymeter helps me diagnose glaucoma in its earlier stages to facilitate treatment and reduce both vision impairment and low vision. It is a key diagnostic tool I always take with me when I make on-site visits to my patients in long-term care homes,” says Dr. Lois Calder, Clinic Director.

The three Canadian grant recipients are:

Canadian National Institute for the Blind
Downtown Eastside Eye Clinic
Vision Institute of Canada
