Our community of volunteers gives people a way to share their experiences with donation and transplantation while giving hope to others living with corneal blindness
Telling your story is a powerful way to inspire others to become registered donors and increase public acceptance of donation. Opportunities include speaking at community events, religious or spiritual gatherings, service clubs, social groups, schools and your work place. We also invite individuals to speak at Eversight events and employee gatherings so that others can see the real impact of our mission.

Eversight hosts a number of community and fundraising events in our service areas throughout the year—from ball games and bowling to BBQs and galas—to help raise critical funds for our charitable services and connect people touched by the gift of sight. Volunteers can assist with planning and coordination, gift-in-kind and sponsorship solicitations, assembling and mailing invitations, promoting with your social media networks or supporting day-of activities. You can even host your own fundraiser! Find events happening in your area on our Events page.
If you enjoy a quieter volunteer experience, our office support opportunities provide just that. Between events and the thousands of letters we send each year to donor families, recipients and contributors, we are always in need of additional help to support our outreach efforts. Volunteers can choose to participate regularly or when time allows in your schedule. Examples of office support needed includes folding, stuffing and labeling letters, assembling packages and information packets, giveaway inventory, typing and data entry and more.
Eversight is committed to changing lives through the gift of sight, but we need your help to light the way to a brighter future for those in need
Sustainers for Sight
You can give the gift of sight all year long by becoming a Sustainer for Sight with a recurring, monthly donation. Your pledge means more people will receive the care they need to see a bright future.
Sustainers for Sight
A planned gift offers the greatest opportunity for you to make a substantial impact for the future and leave a lasting legacy that will restore sight for years to come. Contact us to find out what planned giving option best fits your financial interests. Contact us
Employer Matching Gifts
A matching gift from your employer is a powerful but little-known way to maximize your contributions to make an even bigger impact. Many companies will match the gifts of their employees to charities dollar for dollar. Talk to your employer to see if they offer a matching-gift program. You can help by sharing our cause—join us on social media and help spread the message about the amazing gift of sight.
Create your own living tribute
The Eversight Donor Memorial Garden is the perfect place to honor those who have made the gift of sight possible. Among the evergreens and blooming annuals, visitors enjoy a moment of peaceful solitude as they walk through a winding path and look through engraved paving stones dedicated by donor families, recipients and those touched by sight restoration. You can honor a loved one or commemorate a special event by purchasing a stone paver that includes an engraved message of your choice. Contact the Eversight Philanthropy Department. Contact us
Remembering those who gave
The Memorial Wall at Eversight in New Jersey shimmers with silver and bronze hearts engraved with the names of people who made the courageous decision to become donors. The hearts are permanent features on the wall and added throughout the year by donor families and transplant recipients during a series of emotional open-house ceremonies. With a gift of $50, you can dedicate a heart in honor of a loved one while supporting our mission to restore sight and prevent blindness.
