As a 501 (c) 3 public charity, TSSF’s mission is to save sight for millions of people who suffer from age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and lose their precious vision and also funds innovative vision research projects conducted by the top scientists in the field who are on a path to discover effective new tools, technology, and treatments for people with vision loss.

Low Vision Research Grants serve as a catalyst for groundbreaking low vision research projects conducted by top scientists in the field.

AMD Research Grant Awards are by invitation only on an annual basis. Grant applications are reviewed and vetted by a scientific advisory board.

Special Project Grants encourage collaboration across the scientific research community with an emphasis on enhancing an existing research project or bridge funding.

Due to the COVID 19, we anticipate funding research this summer.
