Nonprofit that grants technology to people with vision loss seeks Wisconsin board members

Eye-Link Foundation (eye-link.org), a 501(c)3 that grants technology and training to non-veterans with vision loss, is opening its doors in Wisconsin.

The foundation is looking for two board members for Wisconsin who could dedicate approximately two hours per month to organization business. One board member would handle Treasurer duties and the other would be a member at large, handling general duties as summarized below.

Board members meet quarterly to handle applications for assistive hardware and software packages to Wisconsin residents who are dealing with uncorrectable sight loss, or who are Blind. These highly specialized adaptive technologies give a "voice" to text on monitors, documents, mail, food & prescription labels, restaurant menus, magazines, books, classroom notes, smart phones, and other devices.

Eye-Link is ready to change lives in Wisconsin. If you’d like to be part of this effort, and for more information, call Jim Justesen at 763-561-6967 or go to http://mn.eye-link.org/.
