Giving Back

Eschenbach is fortunate to be a company that makes impactful products that change the lives of people with vision loss by providing them improved safety, productivity, independence and quality of life. Our company also, though, tries to be a good corporate citizen by giving back to the community at large through select charitable causes the company has chosen to support.

The following are organizations that Eschenbach supports through its philanthropic efforts:

 

SCIVIS - Space Camp for Interested Visually Impaired Students

Eschenbach will be Sponsoring Two Visually Impaired Students to Attend Space Camp!

For the third year in a row Eschenbach will be supporting the Space Camp for Interested Visually Impaired Students (SCIVIS) program by sponsoring two students (grades 7-12) to attend their annual Space Camp for Free. This year the camp will be held from October 6-10, 2024 at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The Camp provides a unique experience for those with vision impairment and is specifically designed so they can fully participate in all of the activities. Those who attend will be immersed in astronaut training techniques using equipment adapted from NASA’s very own astronaut program.

Learn more about the program at www.scivis.org. Students can apply through July 15, 2024.

Eschenbach Partner Project with Fidelco Guide Dogs

Some people who are visually impaired have more profound vision loss and may be unable to benefit as much by magnification solutions. In those cases, a guide dog can be an invaluable tool that can help improve their mobility, safety and quality of life. Eschenbach is proud, through its Partner Project, to sponsor the raising, training and placement of a Fidelco German Shepherd guide dog to someone in need. Our sponsorship allows the client to receive a fully trained guide dog free-of-charge. Learn More!

Vision Health Alliance is dedicated to making eye health a central part of the healthcare conversation and works to create partnerships designed to promote access to eye exams and draw attention to the importance of eye health as it relates to quality of life and early detection of life-threatening diseases.  Learn More!
