Friends of Fred

The Fred Hollows Foundation is proud to launch our new Friends of Fred corporate partnership program, bringing together a circle of corporate partners who are committed to ending avoidable blindness around the globe.

4 out of 5 people who are blind don't need to be. We're on a mission to change this so that people in developing countries have access to the same quality eye care that the rest of the world takes for granted.

Leaving people blind without any help is just not an option, especially when their vision could be restored. But we can't do this work alone. We rely on the integral support of our corporate partners and individual donors to help us transform lives in the 25 countries where we work.

Friends of Fred are vital partners of The Foundation in Dubai, helping us address the leading causes of avoidable blindness, restore sight, and transform lives.

The Foundation believes in building long-term strategic partnerships with our donors. We know that each company has different CSR goals and ambitions, so we work together with each partner to develop mutually beneficial relationships. In the past, our partnership arrangements have included:

  • Cause-related marketing and limited edition products
  • eCommerce initiatives and micro-donations
  • Shared value partnerships and in-kind support
  • Matched donations
  • New technology development
  • Tied funding to program work
  • Staff engagement and workplace giving
