How Can I Support the Illinois Eye-Bank?
There are many ways to show your support for the Illinois Eye-Bank's mission to restore and preserve sight, most easy of which is our online contribution system detailed below.


Make a Charitable Contribution
Financial support is one of the most powerful ways of bringing the gift of restored sight into the community. Your contribution can help us place corneal tissue where it is needed most. It can be the foundation of new and effective means of educating the public about eye, organ and tissue donation. It can also fund groundbreaking eye and vision research, offering new hope to those who cannot be helped by corneal transplantation. It empowers us to provide our services at little or no charge to those who cannot afford the healthcare costs associated with corneal transplantation.

A secure online contribution is the quickest and easiest way to show your support for our mission, and to make a difference in the lives of others.

Be an Eye Donor
Becoming a registered eye, organ and tissue donor is the most important way to ensure our mission can be fulfilled. If not for these special gifts from cornea donors, the sight restoring efforts of the Illinois Eye-Bank would not be possible. You can learn how to join the Illinois Organ/Tissue Donor Registry by visiting the Donate Life Illinois homepage.
