Vision Source Foundation

Vision Source Foundation


The Vision Source Foundation was formed in March 2007, and its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status was approved by the IRS in December 2007.

Since then, the Foundation has received contributions from Vision Source L.P., various vendors, and numerous members of the Vision Source network. All donations to the Foundation are fully tax-deductible under the current IRS regulations.

Mission and Vision

The Foundation evolved out of a response to the needs of our members following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, as well as the multiple storms that hit Florida that hurricane season.

The Foundation’s charter allows for contributions received by the Foundation to be disbursed, as determined by the Board of Directors, to optometrists and their family members who have been impacted by catastrophic events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and wildfires or from health-related events such as death, cancer, and stroke.

All optometrists who are duly licensed by their respective state agency qualify for grants by the Foundation and such optometrists need not have a direct or indirect affiliation with Vision Source. Since its founding, the Vision Source Foundation has distributed more than $1 Million to optometrists and their families impacted by catastrophic events.

The Foundation may also provide grants to optometry schools to further their education of optometry students provided that the particular grant request is a tax-exempt institution or organization. The types of grant requests that might be considered from optometry schools could be for building expansions, professorships, and scholarships.
