Make a Contribution to the
Blindness Prevention - Donor Advised Fund

CLICK HERE To Contribute to the Donor Advised Fund

Member of the Rotarian Action Group for Blindness Prevention work with clubs and districts throughout the year to develop and carry out a wide variety of Blindness Prevention and eyecare projects around the world.  To support these projects, the Blindness Prevention Donor Advised Fund was established by Past RI President, Frank J. Devlyn, to provide grants to projects that qualify for funding by The Rotary Foundation through Matching Grants and Global Grants.

The Blindness Prevention Donor Advised Fund is a sub-entity of The Rotary Foundation and as such has  tax exempt 501(c)(3) status, thereby insuring that all dontations to the BP-DAF are tax deductible (for U.S. citizens).

Each year the BP-DAF provides grants to 25-35 blindness prevention projects.  To continue to provide this support, donations from Rotarians and others are very important.  The BP-DAF Administrator is PDG Walt Schloer, Vice Chairman of the Blindness Prevention RAG.  When BP-DAF donations are made online  (a minimum donation of $100 is required for Paul Harris Fellow recognition) through the RAG for Blindness Prevention, the funds are transferred to the BP-DAF to be used for Blindness Prevention projects.

After making your donation, you will receive a letter for tax purposes from the BP-DAF and the BP-DAF Administrator will notify The Rotary Foundation of your eligibility to receive the Paul Harris Fellow Recognition points.

If you have any questions at all about the BP-DAF or your contribution, please contact PDG Walt Schloer at, or via phone at 541-388-0769  or 541-280-3465(USA) and he will be glad to assist you.
