Why Gifts of Life Insurance Matter

Ryan Clement smiling with a friendWith less than 35 per cent of our total funding coming from the government, we rely on gifts of life insurance from generous Canadians like you in order to continue our vital work.

Every day, 120 Canadians lose their vision. And because CNIB is the primary source of support for people in Canada who are living with vision loss, many would have nowhere to turn for help if it weren’t for the generous donations of friends like you.

Your gift can transform lives

When you leave a gift of life insurance to CNIB, we’ll invest it directly into life-changing rehabilitation services for people right in your own backyard – helping them build their skills, reclaim their confidence and take control of their independence. 

For thousands of Canadians, these services make it possible to lead a full, active life. That’s why your support is so important. 

What your gift can do 

  • Create a brighter future for kids, with one-on-one children’s services covering everything from literacy to social interaction.

  • Open doors to employment, through practical training in things like how to use a computer, write a résumé and track down job leads.

  • Give the opportunity for a full, active life, with programs that promote physical and emotional wellbeing.

  • Help make prevention a priority, through projects that raise awareness about vision health and help prevent Canadians from losing their sight.

  • Fund research for a better world, designed to improve understanding of eye health and the needs of people who are blind or partially sighted.

  • Enable independence in everyday life, with practical support in everything from cooking to walking with a white cane.
