From boosting employee morale by wearing blue jeans, to gaining invaluable marketing opportunities through a Visionary Gala sponsorship – there is a way for your company to get involved with ABVI!

Check out some of the opportunities:

Jeans Day Fundraiser

A great way for your company employees to have fun while boosting your community engagement.

There is only 1 rule, you have to donate $5, $10 or any other designated dollar amount to ABVI in order to wear jeans to work. When and for how long is up to you. You can run Jeans Day for one day only, a month of Fridays, or an entire month! All of your donations will provide vital training and resources for people in our community who are blind or visually impaired.

Can’t wear jeans to work or already wear jeans in your office, no problem. Instead you can wear sneakers to work, your favorite sports team apparel, or come up with a fun theme for the day…the possibilities are endless!

We can provide what you need, stickers for your employees to wear showing their support of ABVI, signage to share your company support with your customers and guests, and social media posts to let the community know you are one of ABVI’s corporate partners.

Contact Sarah Favro, Foundation and Corporate Giving Manager at or (585) 327-5526 to schedule your Jeans Days.


PhotoFinish 5K

Join the Philanthropy Challenge: Walk, Run, Give!

Each fall, Team ABVI hits the streets of Rochester in the George Eastman Museum Photo Finish 5K. This is a great way for your company and your employees to be a part of a community-wide fitness event and make an impact in the lives of people who are blind or visually impaired. Come be a part of our fundraiser and walk away with the great feeling you have contributed to the vital mission of ABVI!

Everyone benefits.  We promise you will have lots of fun participating in this team building event and promoting your good health initiatives, all while giving back to ABVI!

Your employee team will be able to show off your company spirit as they walk or run the picturesque 5K course. In addition, we will recognize your company on our website as a community partner and share your commitment to ABVI on Facebook and Twitter.

If you would like to contribute as a sponsor rather than create a corporate walk/run team, sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Contact Sarah Favro, Foundation and Corporate Giving Manager at or (585) 327-5526 to learn more about joining Team ABVI.


Visionary Gala

The Visionary Gala is ABVI’s signature fundraising event. Each year, our corporate partners and friends gather to celebrate the empowering spirit of ABVI. Through the live and silent auctions, fund-a-need, and raffle, we are able to raise funds to support our vital mission.

You can join us by becoming a corporate sponsor, hosting as a table captain, or purchasing tickets. We promise you will have fun mingling with friends and be inspired by the sights and sounds of the Visionary Gala.

To sponsor the Visionary Gala or attend the event, contact Sarah Favro, Foundation and Corporate Giving Manager at or (585) 327-5526.


Matching Gifts

As an individual, when you contribute to ABVI, you are empowering someone who is blind or visually impaired to be as independent as they want to be. When your company matches your donation, your gift doubles and makes an even bigger difference in someone’s life.

To find out if your company matches personal donations, contact your Human Resources or Community relations department, or Sarah Favro, ABVI’s Foundation and Corporate Giving Manager at either or (585) 327-5526.
