You can help restore human sight!

The Advanced Center for Eyecare relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and community partners, to provide access to affordable high-quality eye care to uninsured and underinsured children, adults and seniors in Kern County. Any donation, no matter the amount, supports ACE in its mission to help children once again see their mothers and fathers clearly, parents see their children, and elderly individuals regain their independence. Your donation will help children to achieve their full academic potential and help individuals go back to work to care for their families.

And remember, the Advanced Center for Eyecare is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax deductible.

In-Kind Donations

Each year, the Advanced Center for Eyecare’s physicians donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of donated medical services and supplies to perform thousands of sight-restoring surgeries. Advanced Center for Eyecare is always looking for new in-kind partners, both corporate and private. Please contact us to discuss our current wish list and this type of donation.

Donate Assets

A gift to the Advanced Center for Eyecare of appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds may have a tax advantage to you under current IRS regulations. When you transfer stock to Advanced Center for Eyecare, you receive a tax deduction for your charitable gift at full market value, and you incur no capital gains (up to the current deduction limits). The date of your gift, as determined by the IRS, is the date it arrives in our bank account.

Planned Donations

Planned giving is an important tool to stimulate change in the world. It is one of the greatest opportunities an individual will ever have to provide direction and benefits for family, friends, and charitable organizations. A planned gift can be a gift now or in the future and offer substantial tax and estate planning benefits. A donor can be any age, give any amount, and use most any asset to achieve personal, financial, and philanthropic goals through a bequest. A bequest in your will or revocable living trust allows you to make a significant contribution to the Advanced Center for Eyecare and maintain control of your funds during your lifetime. It will also allow you to perpetuate your lifetime giving in support of ending blindness.

Setting up an automatic monthly donation with the Advanced Center for Eyecare is an excellent way to show your commitment to eliminating blindness in Kern County. Your monthly donation has an enormous impact because it allows the Advanced Center for Eyecare to reduce costs and plan ahead for future programs.
