Your Support Matters: Non-profits around the world are trying to maintain their service to communities through the coronavirus crisis. As the largest employer of people who are blind in the country, we know we need to do everything we can to support our employees and their wellbeing.

That’s why we have launched the People First Fund, devoting our own dollars to the best investment we can make – our people. Please watch the video message from our President and CEO, David Horton.

In March, IFB Solutions established the People First Fund* to help employees needing financial assistance during the COVID-19 health crisis. Since the fund was established, it has helped hundreds of employees with both financial assistance and job retraining programs, enabling furloughed employees to come back to work to support IFB’s essential production for the U.S. Armed Forces. The People First Fund also will secure the future of IFB’s summer camps and after school activities for children who are blind, both of which are currently closed. The Fund will remain active as our communities return to a new normal. Donations to the People First Fund can be made at

Please help us build on this investment by giving to IFB Solutions in support of the People First Fund. Text PeopleFirst to 41444 or fill out the form below.
