Legacy Society

Association for the Blind Second Sight Legacy Society Vision Forever Logo

The Second Sight Legacy Society has been established to insure that the programs and services provided by the Association for the Blind will continue in perpetuity in Northeastern Pennsylvania.  A gift through the Legacy Society will be invested with the Association for the Blind’s professionally managed endowment which consists of permanent funds that produce an income.  An endowment ensures that important services provided by the Association will be available to future generations, just as they have since 1918.

The greatest benefit of belonging to the Legacy Society is the satisfaction in knowing that your long-range plans will help future generations that require the Association for the Blind’s life-changing services.  As a member, you will also receive these special benefits:

  • Recognition as a legacy society member in the Greater Wilkes-Barre Association for the Blind’s annual donor reports (unless you choose to remain anonymous).
  • Invitations to the Legacy Society’s events.
  • “Founding Members” will be permanently recognized.

To become a member of the Legacy Society, you just need to sign our Statement of Intent that notifies us that you have, or intend to, make an estate gift to the Greater Wilkes-Barre Association for the Blind.  This is not a legally binding document and does not require the amount of the gift you are considering.  Please contact us via email or at (570) 693-3555 ext. 223 for more information.
