As many of us prepare to gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, I want to thank you for being a part of The Glaucoma Foundation’s (TGF) community. Supporters like you help spread the word about our fight against the silent thief of sight.
Without the financial support of donors like you, we wouldn’t be able to fund breakthrough research to find a cure for glaucoma while supporting patients and their families. That’s why I invite you to make a gift to TGF in honor of Giving Tuesday. Your gift received any time before or on Giving Tuesday, November 30th, will be MATCHED — up to $5,000 — by a generous donor!
It is estimated that about 80 million people have glaucoma worldwide, including more than 3 million Americans – but only half of those know it. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States, and is 6 to 8 times more common in African Americans than white populations.
Researchers need our help to preserve and restore sight. Please give as generously as you can this Giving Tuesday. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.

P.S. There are so many ways to help fund a cure for glaucoma. You can join our Cure Now Society if you haven’t already, make a gift from your donor-advised fund, or become an Inner Circle donor by giving monthly. No matter how you give, every dollar gets us closer to a cure!
