About Foundation Fighting Blindness
The Foundation Fighting Blindness is a 501c(3) non-profit that was established in 1971 with the goal of being the driving force behind the research that would provide preventions, treatments, and cures for those affected by blinding retinal degenerative diseases. In that time, we have raised over $760 million and are proudly the world’s leading private funder of retinal disease research. The Foundation hosts over 36 VisionWalks throughout the U.S. raising over $55 million since 2006 to fund research, has identified over 270 retinal-disease causing genes, has 38 clinical trials either underway or being prepared to launch for potential treatments, funded 80 grants in 2019 with 90+ investigators at 67 institutions, and has seen significant breakthroughs in recent years such as: Luxturna (the first FDA-approved gene therapy for the eye or any inherited disease) and the Argus II (the first FDA-approved bionic retina). The Foundation is a beacon of hope for those affected and proceeds raised at events like VisionWalk help us shine even brighter!
