New Vision is fortunate to be housed by Lake Sumter State College. This partnership ensures individuals with low vision or blindness have the educational and vocational opportunities afforded those with sight. We are beyond grateful for their continued support. In the long-term, to accommodate our community's growing need for services, New Vision is seeking a facility to call "home."

Make a memorial or tribute donation
Any gift to New Vision can be specially designated as a tribute in honor of a person or special occasion. Likewise, gifts may be made in memory of a deceased loved one as a way of showing love and respect while helping New Vision's mission at the same time.

Sponsor an event
New Vision is always looking for sponsors of our annual fundraising events, such as Dining in the Dark. Sponsorships range from $500 to $5,000 and each level offers more promotional opportunities. 

Purchase the "A State of Vision" specialty license plate
With your purchase of the A State of Vision license plate in Lake and Sumter Counties, the $25 extra charge for the plate comes right back to New Vision. To get the tag, you simply bring your current tag to the Lake County Tax Collector's office and purchase the new tag. You don't have to wait until your annual renewal because you will get a credit for the unused time on your current tag. You can also purchase a gift certificate for friend and family. 

Make a real estate gift
When you make an outright, irrevocable gift of real property to New Vision for Independence, Inc., you may be eligible for a charitable income tax deduction equal to the full, fair market value of the property. You may also save on capital gains and, as well, receive a large charitable deduction.

Make a gift through your retirement plan
If you have accrued funds in a company pension plan or IRA beyond your needs for a secure retirement, you should consider making a gift from your account to New Vision for Independence, Inc. As a side benefit, such a gift may lower estate taxes through the charitable deduction it provides.

Donate frequent flyer miles and hotel points
Most airlines allow people to use their frequent flier miles to buy tickets or office items for other people.

Redeem credit card points
Turn your unused credit card points into a donation to New Vision. Both American Express and Citicard offer this program.

Shop using Giving Assistant
Use Giving Assistant to save money and support New Vision for Independence Inc.

Make a planned gift
Remember New Vision in your estate plans. Unfortunately, about half of all Americans do not have a will. You can put your affairs in order for those you care about by contacting your attorney or trust officer, who will discuss the many options available to you.
