Private philanthropy is vital to the success of the Flaum Eye Institute (FEI). Generous gifts from individuals, corporations and foundations provide the extra measure of support needed to meet our mission of developing and applying advanced technologies for the preservation, enhancement and restoration of vision.

Research is key to understanding the root causes of eye disease, to developing more sensitive diagnostic tools and to discovering treatments. Your donations can make the difference between the status quo and the ability to initiate new investigations.

The Eye Institute offers a variety of philanthropic options to those who wish to contribute to this effort. Options include:

  • Outright Gifts
  • Gift Pledges
  • Planned Gifts

To discuss your contribution or for more information on ways to support the Flaum Eye Institute or if you are interested in a guided tour of Flaum Eye Institute Research Laboratories, please contact Diane Quinlisk in our development office.
