What Can I Do to Help?
Delaware Association for the Blind (DAB) is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, and qualifies for charitable gifts from individuals, organizations, foundations and corporations.
You can make a donation through our safe, secure PayPal account. A PayPal account is not required to make an online donation to DAB.
The Delaware Association for the Blind depends upon the generosity of the community for financial support. For almost 65 years, our community has demonstrated its concern for the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired with its donations of time, talent and dollars. We thank our community for this enduring commitment!
As a private, not-for-profit organization, DAB is not a state or federal agency and does not directly receive tax dollars. Most of the support for our programs and services comes from donations from caring individuals and community groups, bequests, endowment income, fundraising events and United Way designations.
Your tax-deductible donation will enable DAB to offer effective programs and services to those who need them most, and to expand our efforts in serving the blind and visually impaired community.
Outright gifts such as cash, check, credit card or securities in all amounts are the most valuable gift you can make to the Delaware Association for the Blind. A gift receipt is sent so that you may take a charitable income tax deduction for your donation.
