Support CCB

As baby-boomers age and people live longer, the need for CCB's many programs and services is growing. For blind and visually impaired people, ordinary activities like using a cellular phone or an ATM, having a job and managing personal care, are difficult. What's more, the technology taken for granted by the general population is all too often unusable for those affected by sight loss. With its statewide network of Californians who are blind and visually impaired, CCB provides the support and resources needed to break down barriers and promote more full and rewarding lives.

CCB relies on the support of individuals, foundations and corporations (not government funding) to help us realize our vision of independence and equality of opportunity. Your contribution will help us advocate for change at the legislative level and institute better, less discriminatory public policies that will enable blind and visually impaired individuals to become equal members of our community.

Some of our recent successes include increased availability of talking ATMs, accessible pedestrian signals and talking voting machines.

Please help us continue this important work by making a donation. Your support is valuable and appreciated--even a small amount helps. As we are a nonprofit tax-exempt organization, all donations are tax-deductible.

Working together we can make a profound difference!

Make a Bequest

There are several ways that you can make a bequest or gift through your will to CCB. The provision you choose will depend upon your circumstances, what type of property you wish to bequeath and your other obligations. The kinds of bequests you can make are:

Specific Bequest: This is where you bequeath a specific sum of cash or other asset for a program you name or for CCB's use where needed. Here is some suggested wording for making a specific bequest:

"I bequeath to California Council of the Blind of Sacramento, CA. the sum of $_________________, to be used by said corporation for its general purposes."

Residuary Bequest: In this case you bequeath a specified percentage or all of the assets remaining in your estate after other expenses and bequests have been paid.

Contingent Bequest: In this case you direct that a specific amount or a percentage of your estate be paid to CCB, only if your other beneficiary does not survive you.
