About the Indiana Blind Children's Foundation
Founded in 1993, the mission of the Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation (IBCF) is to invest in children with visual impairments so each child will thrive in school and daily life. IBCF is a philanthropic foundation that financially supports the unique work of the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Over the past 150 years, the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired has developed substantial and unique expertise regarding the education of students who are blind and visually impaired. The School has established itself as a nationally-recognized educational institution and a critical state resource for Indiana’s children. Every year, the School educates hundreds of Indiana’s children and young adults ranging from infants to 22 years old and living in all parts of the state.
About the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI) educates and invests in many children that, due to severe or multiple disabilities, no other school can serve. Through its outreach initiatives, ISBVI provides services to hundreds of children and young adults throughout the state who are blind and visually impaired but are not enrolled at the School.
ISBVI is an indispensable resource for anyone involved in educating a child who is blind or visually impaired. The School is frequently recognized nationally by peer schools for its best practices. It is the only residential school for the blind and visually impaired in Indiana and is one of the largest schools for the blind and visually impaired in the country.
