Gift of Light Charlottesville Campaign

In classrooms across Charlottesville, children are struggling not because they lack ability or desire, but simply because they lack all the tools they need to succeed; their poor vision is a barrier to their learning. And now, more than ever, as children spend increased time on devices due to virtual and hybrid learning, their healthy vision is critical to their success!

Your support of the Conexus Gift of Light campaign WILL change the life of a child in your community!

For a gift of $10, Conexus can provide a child a VisioCheck screening! For a gift of $50, Conexus can provide glasses for a child! For a gift of $150, Conexus can provide screening for an entire classroom! For a gift of $500, Conexus can provide an entire day of Mobile Vision Clinic services!

This holiday season, we hope you consider making a charitable donation to bring the gift of healthy vision to a child!

We are grateful for our 2023 Gift of Light Partners!

​Why YOUR Support Matters!

Healthy vision is CRITICAL to a child’s success in the classroom and yet for hundreds of children across Charlottesville, they do not even know they have a vision issue significant enough to impact their ability to learn.

In the last 3 years, Conexus has screened over 4,000 children in Charlottesville and more than 1,100 were referred for additional care. During the 2022-2023 school year, Conexus began delivering Mobile Vision Clinic services to these students. Since its expansion in to Charlottesville, Conexus has delivered over 225 FREE eye exams and glasses.

Conexus is positioned to expand its services even further, but we need YOUR help! Join us through a Gift of Light donation and change the life of a child this holiday season.
