Giving Tuesday

Every contribution matters. Every contributor matters. 

Giving Tuesday is on Tuesday, November 28, 2017!

Last year, NYISE's staff, board, and supporters raised over $6,000 to purchase four new Grade Three Braille textbooks and twenty children's braille books (see below for a complete list) for our library.

As we gear up for this Giving Tuesday 2017, thank you to everyone who was involved in making our campaign a success.
