Giving Tuesday

Thank you for your support!

Giving Tuesday


Join members of the SUNY College of Optometry community to make a difference on #GivingTuesday. Your participation through following, sharing, posting and giving will help us gain important visibility and provide support to our students and patients.

Funds raised through #EyeGive @SUNYOpt will support vision care for women, men, and children, regardless of their ability to pay; community outreach programs including care for homebound and homeless patients; funding for vision science research; and scholarships and travel grants for outstanding students. This year, we are excited to announce the Optometric Center of New York Trustees Challenge Match – a dollar-for-dollar match for each dollar raised for student scholarships! Every gift of any size helps.

Your fully tax-deductible #GivingTuesday @SUNYOpt contribution to the OCNY will make an impact.
