Attend or Host a Fundraiser

Perkins’ fundraisers are the perfect combination of good times and good deeds. They bring together a community of supporters who help raise awareness and critical funds for our programs and services. And they sparkle with smiling faces, lively conversation and a powerful sense of enthusiasm for Perkins’ mission.

We invite you to attend or volunteer at one of our events, like the Perkins Possibilities Gala or the Taste of Perkins. Or, you can host your own inspirational fundraiser. There’s no more enjoyable way to make a difference—and help children and adults who are blind build a better, brighter future. For more information about Perkins’ fundraisers, contact us or call Emily Goodman, Special Events Manager, at 617-972-7583.
