This award totals $65,000 to support strategic planning implementation.
Cleveland Eye Bank Foundation (CEBF) announces its recent award of grant monies from the Cleveland Foundation. This award totals $65,000 of support for its current fiscal year.
In 2021, CEBF underwent strategic planning, also funded by the Cleveland Foundation. Now receiving funds from the foundation to support strategic planning implementation, CEBF will be able to strengthen its fundraising capacity by implementing key organizational objectives identified in the strategic plan. All action steps will expand CEBF’s mission of funding Northeast Ohio vision research, inherently restoring the eyesight of future generations.
Of the renewed support, CEBF Executive Director Debbie May-Johnson says, “We are pleased to once again partner with the Cleveland Foundation, and we appreciate their support as the Cleveland Eye Bank Foundation continues to contribute to the strength and vision health of our community.”
“Vision impairments cost Cuyahoga County more than $644 million annually,” adds Kate Terrell, Cleveland Foundation program officer for health and human services. “The work the Cleveland Eye Bank Foundation and its university and hospital partners are doing has the potential for local, national and international impact.”
