The Second Annual

TGF Art Challenge to Celebrate Vision

With Matching Dollar-for-Dollar Gift for each Donation to Double Your Impact!

This summer, enjoy celebrating art while you double the impact of your contribution to glaucoma research.

Through the generosity of a Glaucoma Foundation donor, every gift you make to The TGF Art

Challenge will be matched, dollar for dollar.

TGF invites everyone who makes art and everyone who appreciates their vision to join us in raising money for sight-saving research.

The TGF Art Challenge is about vision, for vision.

Art Challenge Ambassador

Artists:

Enter the Challenge by submitting a digital image of your original work and ask your family, friends, and colleagues to support your vision with donations to TGF.

This year, every gift will be matched, doubling its impact on the search for a cure.

You can enter the Challenge in one of the three levels below by submitting a digital version of your work – an original photograph, drawing, painting, collage, print, glasswork, or sculpture in any medium. Jewelry artists are welcome too!

Include a photo of yourself if you like, a title and description of the work, and a brief biography.

Your submitted work and information will appear on your own Art Challenge page on our website where your friends and other art lovers can make donations in your honor.
