For nearly a century, AFB has led efforts to expand possibilities for people with vision loss. We've done it by pushing the boundaries of technology while fighting continuously for policies that eradicate barriers to learning, employment, and full participation in society. The resulting breakthroughs have been nothing short of transformative. AFB remains a champion of possibilities — an incubator of breakthroughs — the more outsized and ambitious the better. We're proud of our history—and we want to keep making history with you, together. Your support makes breakthroughs possible, and your donation makes a difference.

For almost 100 years, the American Foundation for the Blind has built on the legacy of Helen Keller—by connecting people with vision loss to the outside world, and fighting for those who fought for us.

By giving a voice to those who need it, advocating for laws that help visually impaired people, and helping us communicate with the world in a whole new way.

Helen would be proud of the breakthroughs made for generations of Americans with vision loss. As for tomorrow? Let's shoot for the moon.
