Official Giving Tuesday Logo

Today, on #GivingTuesday, we turn our Thanksgiving gratitude into action. We do this in service to others, recognizing that all do not share our good fortune. Join today in helping a special area of our clinic start a new chapter.

We are pleased to use #GivingTuesday to launch our renovation plan for the IEI’s Pediatric & Binocular Vision Center. We invite you, our faculty, staff, and colleagues, to unite in this mission. Making a gift to ICO/IEI on #GivingTuesday supports the rebirth of this vital service area, which cares for our youngest patients.

Early intervention is critical for eye health and the overall development of young children. This renovation project will position us to be more effective in ensuring the best possible outcomes for the nearly 6,000 children seen yearly at ICO/IEI. Improving patients’ lives is why we all come to work each day.

We dare to make a difference, offering exceptional care to every patient, regardless of their insurance or ability to pay. This year, ICO celebrates its 145th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, PAC will be matching all employee contributions in increments of $145. All donations will count toward the match program. Additionally, every employee who gives any dollar amount will receive an extra raffle ticket at this year’s ICO holiday party, plus their name displayed at the event. 

This #GivingTuesday, please unite with your ICO family and make a gift to the Pediatric & Binocular Vision Center’s renovation project. You can donate all at once, or with a payroll deduction. If you feel inspired, please share the exciting renovation news with your loved ones, too. Every gift, large or small, will make a difference in the lives of our young patients.
