Northwest Association for Blind Athletes is committed to financial transparency. Our organization is able to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to nearly 2,000 children, youth and adults who are blind and visually impaired because of generous community support and philanthropic investment.

We are honored to say that in FY20-21, over 75% of all funding went directly to support our mission and programs for individuals with visual impairments.
