Vision Foundation and Fight for Sight announce merger
Vision Foundation’s board and Fight for Sight’s board voted unanimously for the merger from 1 April 2023.
The merger will mean they’ll be the only UK grant-maker to change lives through funding scientific research and providing innovative services.
Olivia Curno, CEO of Vision Foundation has chosen to step away from the charity and will be starting an exciting new role in the care sector as Chief Executive of Elizabeth Finn Homes.
Olivia Curno, CEO of Vision Foundation
“I am extremely proud of what Vision Foundation has achieved in recent years, and can’t think of a better next chapter than joining forces with Fight for Sight and taking our impact nationwide. Through this merger, we will have the expertise, talent and scale to go on to incredible things, all under the visionary leadership of Keith Valentine.”
Keith Valentine, CEO of Fight for Sight
“I’m a long-standing supporter of Vision Foundation and have immense respect for all they achieve. Taking that incredible work – as well as our mission at Fight for Sight – onto the national stage is a very big deal. The impact we can have for people and families affected by sight loss across the country is immeasurable. This merger will enable us to grow our funding, which means a stronger, more impactful organisation for the years to come.”
