Which Organization Membership is Right for You?

Non-Profit Members

For Chief Executives of non-profits and charitable organizations recognized under the laws of the United States and Canada whose primary mission is the provision of services, products, and/or support to people who are blind or have low vision and/or the organizations serving them and support the goals and values of the Alliance. Dues are based on annual operating expenses according to line 18 of your organization’s latest IRS form 990.

Associate Organizations

For Chief Executives of for-profit organizations involved in the provision of services, products and/or support to people who are blind or have low vision and/or the organizations serving them; and for non-profit organizations whose missions include the provision of services, products, and/or support to people who are blind or have low vision and/or the organizations serving them but may not be primary or exclusive. Examples include but are not limited to, eye banks, assistive technology product and training companies serving people of all disabilities, aging and healthcare organizations, Centers for Independent Living, academic institutions, and research entities. The key difference in benefits between Associates and regular VSA Members is that Associates do not have a vote in organizational business. Dues are based on annual operating expenses.

Grant-Making Organizations

This membership is for Chief Executives of organizations that provide grants to nonprofit organizations in the blindness and low vision field. Dues are $500 for all Grant-Making Organizations.

Powerful Member Benefits

Membership is restricted to the Executive Director/CEO of non-profits or charitable organizations (recognized under the laws of the United States and Canada) whose primary mission is to serve people who are blind or visually impaired and who support the goals and values of VisionServe Alliance. Dues based on annual operating expenses, can be determined based on your organization’s latest IRS form 990, line 18.

What Members SAY!

Bring along your executive team for even greater impact!”
