The Reader’s Digest Partners for Sight Foundation is dedicated to increasing the self-reliance and dignity of blind and visually impaired persons. The foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for initiatives that align with its mission to assist the visually impaired and blind in leading independent and productive lives.
Through the RFP, the foundation seeks to fund sustainable projects with broad, practical applications and measurable outcomes. Priority will be given to new initiatives, but projects currently in development and requiring additional funding in order to be implemented will be considered as well.
In the first year of funding, grants of up to $300,000 will be awarded to qualified projects. Based on proven results, additional grants of up to $200,000 each will be awarded for up to two additional years.
Date due: September 30, 2013 (Pre-proposals)
