Monthly Giving is Both Effective and Convenient

  • Your automatic monthly donations provide Braille Institute with a steady and predictable source of income.
  • More of your donation goes directly to providing FREE programs and services because automatic recurring gifts are acquired at a cost substantially below that of other fundraising methods.
  • Automated gifts are kinder to the environment because they are paperless.
  • Your monthly donations are safely, securely and automatically processed directly through your bank account or credit card.
  • You maintain complete control of these gifts and can change the amount or the timing of your payment or cancel at any time by calling (323) 663-1111, Ext. 1238
