Funded through public and private sources, the Lackawanna Blind Association is a non-profit organization and offers a wide variety of programs designed to support our visually impaired community members. We rely on the kindness and services of a large team of volunteers as well as the generous donations of individuals, businesses, and foundations.

As a United Way Agency, The Lackawanna Blind Association receives a portion of its annual funding from the United Way campaign. However, each year the Lackawanna Blind Association becomes more dependent on alternate funding. Consider giving the Gift of Sight! Your contribution may be made in honor of or in memory of an individual, or as a bequest (distributed through your last will and testament). Your generosity will help fund the numerous beneficial programs offered at the Lackawanna Blind Association.

The Light the Way Legacy Society

The Light the Way Legacy Society was formed in 2012 as a way to invite our community members to include the Lackawanna Blind Association in their estate planning, and to honor those who notify us that they have done so. Members of the Light the Way Legacy Society can have the special satisfaction of knowing that their life’s efforts will continue to make a difference. Legacy gifts become a permanent part of LBA’s endowment, ensuring that LBA can continue to provide compassionate care for its blind and visually impaired family. Legacy gifts also may be designated for a specific purpose or as a memorial or tribute to loved ones.

For more information call 570-342-7613 (x5) or email [email protected].
