Strategic Plan

The Glaucoma Research Foundation Board of Directors and staff regularly review, evaluate and envision the next chapter in the Foundation's mission: to prevent vision loss from glaucoma by investing in innovative research, education, and support with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.

The current strategic plan and its six strategic imperatives adopted by the Board in 2013 provide a framework for action and will ensure Glaucoma Research Foundation's continued success and accomplishment.

Strategic Imperatives

Following are the strategic imperatives Glaucoma Research Foundation must achieve over the next three years in order to move toward fulfilling its vision and mission.

1. Research

Drive research for improved therapies and ultimately a cure by investing in innovative, collaborative, multi-year research programs and attracting new investigators and ideas with one-year research grants targeting strategic goals set by Glaucoma Research Foundation.

2. Education & Support

Empower glaucoma patients with information they need to prevent vision loss and improve quality of life. Provide comprehensive, compassionate, accessible, unbiased and accurate information for glaucoma patients and their care providers.

3. Communication

Inform and engage constituents and the general public by communicating Glaucoma Research Foundation mission, programs, and success. Develop methods to inspire and encourage further engagement through communications.

4. Philanthropy

Maximize the impact of philanthropic support to fulfill Glaucoma Research Foundation’s ambitious research goals, advance educational programs, and bring us closer to finding a cure for glaucoma.

5. Board Engagement

Develop Board membership to ensure a cadre of enthusiastic advocates who represent various constituencies impacted by glaucoma.

6. Evaluation

Strive to continuously improve the effectiveness of the Foundation's investments in research, education and support, communication, and board engagement with metrics reported quarterly to the Board.
