Historic Campaign Raises $25 Million

“We are so grateful to all the donors who joined us in this historic campaign to advance the search for a cure for glaucoma.”

On June 30, 2020, thanks to more than 27,500 contributions, Glaucoma Research Foundation reached its goal to raise $25 million to advance innovative research and support essential patient education programs.

This ambitious campaign was launched in 2014 to fund scientific discovery toward a cure and introduce new initiatives to inform and empower patients.

Thomas M. Brunner, President and CEO of Glaucoma Research Foundation stated, “We are so grateful to all the donors who joined us in this historic campaign over the past six years to advance the search for a cure for glaucoma.” In June, Mr. Brunner initiated a matching gift opportunity, the President’s Challenge, to close the Campaign.

He added, “This is an extraordinary and difficult time around the world, and it was incredibly heartwarming to receive these final gifts over the past few months of the Campaign. As our work at Glaucoma Research Foundation continues, this important fundraising endeavor brings us closer to a future without glaucoma, for everyone.”
