CLARK, N.J., Sept. 27, 2021 — NJ Sharing Network kickstarted Eversight’s Community Partners program as a Founding Partner with a gift of $5,000. The Community Partners program was created to recognize corporate, business and community leaders who are committed to advancing health and human services in New Jersey and around the world.
“NJ Sharing Network is proud to continue its longstanding partnership with Eversight to foster innovation and advancements in donation, transplantation and research,” said Carolyn M. Welsh, Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer, NJ Sharing Network. “By supporting Eversight’s Community Partners Program, we are working together to power our combined efforts to raise awareness and inspire others to register as donors to help restore sight and prevent blindness.”
Community Partners engage in a mutually beneficial relationship with Eversight, receiving special recognition with varying benefits while simultaneously advancing Eversight’s mission to restore sight and prevent blindness. Some benefits include recognition at in-person and online events, leadership opportunities, provision of educational literature and Eversight materials at events, and early-bird access to events and auctions. Community Partners are recognized online and in Eversight’s annual impact report.
“Eversight’s Community Partners are dedicated to creating a world without blindness,” said Teresa Clark, Vice President of Philanthropy, Eversight. “We are honored to have NJ Sharing Network join as a Founding Community Partner and look forward to working with other dedicated corporations and organizations to support access to sight on a global scale.”
