$225,000 Donation to Fund BHVIF Scholarships

The Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation (BHVIF) has received a donation of AU$225,000 – the largest single donation in the history of the Foundation.

The donation will be used to fund scholarships to train Aboriginal optometrists and providers of vision care services within regional areas of Australia. The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has released the funds for use over the next three years.

Speaking of the donation Sandra Bailey, Chairperson of the BHVIF said, “We are tremendously appreciative of this donation. The Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation is committed to supporting sustainable access to primary eye care and improved eye health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and this donation will greatly support this mission.

“There is a significant disparity in eye health between Indigenous and non-indigenous Australians and I am very proud to announce that these scholarships are a priority of the Foundation.”
