"BCBC’s generous grants have supported our coaches, enabled us to offer personalized instruction and to fabricate specialized equipment - all of which are critical to our mission of bringing the life-changing power of rowing to a group of deserving young people." - Ted Benford, Executive Director
"Through (BCBC's) years of generous support and sincere appreciation of our mission, they have helped put braille books directly into the hands of over 80,000 blind children! We are honored to have such a wonderful and committed partner.” - Chris Milmore, Grant Manager
"Thanks to BCBC, students who are blind or low vision have participated in a Boston based after school program. Thanks to your support, students have participated in theater classes and created skits for their end of year performance; attended cooking classes and made pizza, brownies, salads and pasta dishes; trained for road races and completed several 5k races; attended career exploration classes and gotten their first work experiences." - Cheryl Cumings
“As a person who is totally blind, I found few opportunities to be alone in nature. That is, until Mass Audubon came along. With the creation of their universally accessible All Persons rope-guided trails, I can be alone and experience nature in an entirely new way.” - Jerry Berrier, Access Technology Consultant
"BCBC has been helping to sponsor our camps since 2007. Our programs have been enriched by their support which allows blind children to experience activities traditionally enjoyed by sighted children. We have been able to offer both indoor and outdoor experiences that expose the blind “campers” to a world of exploration through unique experiences." - John Oliveira, President
"Funding from BCBC has supported developing the mentorship program for VIP. This funding has allowed LAB to develop the VIP program and support our goal to design activities that promote team work and work towards lasting friendships." - Bianca Sabatino, Youth Program Coordinator
