Our deepest gratitude to the individuals and corporations whose support sustains the American Academy of  Optometry Foundation (AAOF). We give special thanks to those whose extraordinary generosity and leadership enable the AAOF to fulfill its mission.

The Legacy Society recognizes those individuals who have included the AAOF in their estate plans. Contributions received through bequests are a vital part of our planned giving program and help endow future programs and initiatives. A donor may choose to designate the American Academy of Optometry Foundation as the recipient of a bequest through his/her will by naming the Foundation to receive a specific dollar amount or percentage of the residual estate. Gifts will enable a donor to make a significant contribution to the AAOF while retaining full control of his/her assets.

If you are interested in becoming a member of this elite group, please contact the Foundation at (321) 319-4870 or AAOF@aaoptom.org.

AAOF is proud to acknowledge the following individuals who have informed us that the American Academy of Optometry Foundation is designated as a beneficiary of a bequest through their will:
