Future In Sight
We are proud to have made an impact on nearly 4,500 lives during our most recent fiscal year, yet we know there are thousands more people who need our help to safely navigate their world with vision loss. With more than 30,000 residents in New Hampshire who are blind or visually impaired, we at Future In Sight have a singular goal: to reach, serve and transform the lives of more individuals with profound vision loss across our state in 2020.
Our signature event, The Walk for Sight, is held on the morning of the first Saturday in June. This annual 3K walk through historic downtown Concord is an ideal team-building and community investment opportunity for businesses. It’s a chance to walk for wellness while raising critical funds to assure the well-being of individuals with profound vision loss throughout the Granite State.
Throughout the year, we raise funds through Dinners in the Dark, which are hosted by local restaurants. This unforgettable sensory dining experience offers a glimpse into what it feels like to be blind, as dinner guests wear blindfolds once dinner begins.

Annual gifts are at the heart of our capacity to serve individuals of all ages who are blind or visually impaired, regardless of their ability to pay. When Future In Sight staff conducts home visits for seniors, for example, they quickly make enhancements tailored to specific vision issues that make food preparation and cooking easier — and safer. They help relocate items that can present trip and fall hazards. They help folks navigate routes into and out of their homes. Together, they make progress toward improved health status, greater independence and self-esteem, while engaging in activities that reduce social isolation and increase their confidence so that they participate more fully in family and community life. Through your gift, you are a part of our life-changing work: https://futureinsight.org/donate
The inability to drive is one of the most limiting aspects of life for a person with vision loss. Thanks to dedicated volunteers, the adjustment to daily life can be made a bit easier. If you have a few hours a month to commit to taking someone to appointments or food shopping, we’d love to hear from you at 603-565-2409. You will change a life, and it might be your own.
Be a part of our monthly Mission Tours held at 25 Walker Street to hear from individuals directly as they walk you through the ways their lives — and the lives of their families — have been transformed by Future In Sight. RSVP at 603-565-2427.
