Donate as a Company

Group of business people standing togehterCNIB relies on donations from companies like yours to continue helping thousands of Canadians overcome the challenges of sight loss each day. 

Your support will enable us to provide personalized rehabilitation services to people of all ages in your community who are blind or partially sighted – teaching them everything from how to walk safely with a white cane, to how to do everyday tasks like cooking and banking independently without sight.

Giving is good for business

It’s no secret that corporate social responsibility helps organizations drive business results. By championing a cause – particularly a local one – companies show they are about more than just making a profit. They show they care.

  • 8 out of 10 adults say that corporate support of causes wins their trust in a company.*
  • 71 per cent of employees want to work for companies that commit to social and community concerns.** 
  • 70 per cent of consumers are willing to pay more for a product from a company they regard as responsible.***
