Our Leadership Honour Roll

Little girl holding up a Thank you signWith less than 35 per cent of our total funding coming from government sources, CNIB relies on public donations in order to be there for all those who need our services.

The following individuals, corporations, foundations and services clubs have made incredible generous contributions to CNIB in the 2015 – 2016 fiscal year, and also have proved themselves as leaders in the creation of a better tomorrow for all Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. The ripple effect from their gifts will touch countless lives for generations to come.

We're proud to have the following generous donors on our Leadership Honor Roll, and we send our most heartfelt thanks for their outstanding support.
