in our work

In a world built on the ability to see, vision, the most dominant of our senses, is vital at every turn of our lives.​

Foundations and Social Impact Investors

Equitable access
for all.

RestoringVision invites Foundations and Social Impact Investors to be part of the solution to ensure people living in poverty have equitable access to vision services and eyeglasses. When you invest in our work, you are not only joining us to solve the vision crisis, you are advancing critical international development and global health agendas and helping solve some of the world’s most pressing issues.

When you invest in our work, you invest in:

  • Eight United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
  • International and Global Development
  • Economic Empowerment
  • Economic Development
  • Sustained Livelihoods
  • Aging Populations

Two dollars.

Endless impact.

For every $2 invested in RestoringVision, you advance our mission of bringing clear vision to one person living on less than $2 per day. For someone earning $2 a day, this amounts to $140 a year, an extraordinary ROI. For every 1M people whose vision is restored, $140,000,000 in additional earning potential is produced at the household level.  Now that’s social and global impact!

Corporate Philanthropy

Infinite impact.

RestoringVision is passionate about the intersection of business and social impact, and we enjoy bringing our cause to the forefront of great companies and brands. The contributions corporations make when partnering with us go beyond monetary support.

Awareness. Action. Access.

Through Social Responsibility programs and by leveraging their brand, corporations can play a leading role in raising awareness of the vision crisis and the lack of access to vision programs and glasses in impoverished communities worldwide. They can inspire their brand loyalists, customers, and employees to take action to help bring these communities equitable access to the vision services and glasses they need.

Join in our work by engaging in the following corporate giving program(s).

Direct Gifts

Donations provided by corporations disbursed annually to RestoringVision or at various points in the year and support advancing RestoringVision’s mission and programs.

Brands inspire and provide their customers the opportunity to donate to our cause in-store or online at checkout. Click here to learn about the power of consumer giving. Click here for our Customer Giving How-To Guide.

Cause Marketing and One for One

Built on the Buy-a-Pair, Give-a-Pair model, for every product or service a customer purchases, the corporation makes a monetary donation equivalent to our cost to reach one beneficiary (~$2.00) to RestoringVision quarterly or monthly.


Corporations set up an internal giving system that encourages and allows employees to donate part of their weekly pay to support a cause.

In-kind Glasses

We accept new reading glasses, single vision minus glasses, and sunglasses from optical companies with unused or excess stock. These donations are used to support our program delivery models. Download our In-kind donation form.

We can have an enormous impact on people. It’s something that we take for granted in the developed world – anyone who needs a pair of glasses basically has glasses. It’s amazing how many people in the third world do not have glasses but need them.

Shelter Hill Foundation Trustee


It’s been our mission since day one to make our customers smile with quality eyewear at fair prices… all whilst having a positive impact. Every time you order a pair from Jimmy Fairly, we finance the cost of a pair of reading glasses from the international charity RestoringVision. Today, we have already been able to help more than 1,000,000 people regain their sight. And we don't want to stop there.
