Founded in 1918, the CNIB Foundation is a non-profit organization driven to change what it is to be blind today. CNIB delivers innovative programs and powerful advocacy that empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion.
CNIB Guide Dogs has launched a Comprehensive Campaign to respond to the 375 per cent increase in applications for support since the pandemic began. This year has clarified and sharpened our understanding of the need for CNIB to accelerate the development of a sustainable, full-service guide dog program for Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. We will address this challenge and the opportunity with a capital campaign over the next three years, designed to significantly expand the CNIB Guide Dogs program. The overall fundraising goal for the campaign is $25 million, including three focus areas plus 10% contingency fund.
