There are Many Ways to Support the Visually Impaired
At Florida Agencies Serving the Blind, our focus is funding services and activities that help the visually impaired. We seek to improve lives by educating decision-makers on policy issues so the needs of the visually impaired are addressed. We find resources for under-funded local and state-level agencies serving the blind and ways to save in order to stretch budgets. You can help provide needed funding by purchasing A State of Vision license plate or by making a donation. Volunteers are also always welcome at your local Florida ASB agency and you may save a life by referring someone who may need our services. With your help, together we can improve the lives of over 2 million Floridians in need of vision rehabilitation services.
Helping Florida Become A State of Vision
Our A State of Vision specialty license plate program has provided over $200,000 towards direct services helping Floridians who are visually impaired. When you buy A State of Vision license plate through the Florida DMV, the $25 fee funds an agency serving the blind in your specific county. You can buy a specialty tag gift certificate as well. Get your A State of Vision license plate at your local tax collector’s office.
You can also donate when you renew your driver’s license or when you’re renewing your registration/license plate. Simple check-off “Senior Vision Services” or “Blind Babies” to make a donation to an agency serving people who are visually impaired near you.
“This was the very first project of the Florida Legislature’s new Vision Caucus; and it will help thousands of Floridians with vision loss. My wife and I will proudly display one of these tags on our car.”
Representative Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala),
who sponsored legislation creating the “A State of Vision” specialty license tag
