Our corporate partnerships are a key component to engaging the general public. Through corporate partners, we are able to build brand awareness and educate consumers about the cause of vision. Corporations help us to reach new audiences and help make a difference in their communities.
We are so thankful to our corporate partners who implement cause marketing campaigns within their business by selling products and implementing donation campaigns at their retail stores.
Essilor of America, the leading manufacturer of eyeglass lenses internationally, founded Essilor Vision Foundation in 2007. Essilor of America provides office space, overhead, employee salaries, technology, and other financial support for Essilor Vision Foundation. This allows the organization to focus on raising funds to directly serve people in need of vision care. Due to Essilor’s support, over 90% of every dollar donated to the organization goes directly to providing vision services to people in need. Essilor of America is our organization's founding sponsor and largest donor in-kind.
In addition to providing overhead, Essilor of America generously provide free lenses and lab services, which enables our organization to provide low-cost glasses to individuals who could otherwise not afford care.
