Foundation Fighting Blindness

Since its founding in 1971, The Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) has been dedicated to funding innovative research to find preventions, treatments, and cures for inherited retinal degenerative diseases that lead to blindness and affect more than nine million people in the United States.

FFB’s mission includes public health education. The Foundation provides information on retinal degenerative diseases to all who request it to increase knowledge and awareness of these conditions.

The Foundation is led by a governing board of up to 25 directors, who are elected by a board of national trustees numbering nearly 150. The Foundation has over 50 volunteer-led groups across the US. These dedicated volunteers raise funds, increase public awareness, and provide support to their communities. FFB depends on its trustees and a nationwide volunteer fundraising network to raise funds for its research initiatives. The organization’s professional staff provides management and administrative support, both from its national office outside of Baltimore, Maryland, and through several field offices.
