Research to Prevent Blindness Celebrates 60th Anniversary

Today, Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) celebrates the 60th anniversary of its incorporation. With the help of some of our grantees, we pause to reflect on our many sight-saving accomplishments over the past 60 years:  

In honor of RPB’s sight-saving work, please consider making an anniversary donation of $60 to allow us to keep supporting incredible scientific discoveries. All donations to RPB go directly to research and are matched by RPB; in fact, for the month of February 2020, donations will be applied to the RPB Career Development Award and will trigger a three-to-one match, thanks to a very generous gift to RPB.

Thank you for your support of RPB - we are grateful to everyone who has played a part in our success over the past 60 years!
