2023 State Convention Sponsor Registration

2023 ACB Of Minnesota Convention Sponsorship Opportunities

The American Council of the Blind of Minnesota (ACBM) is a registered 501(c ((3) tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, and an affiliate of the national organization of The American Council of the Blind.

ACBM is a consumer advocacy organization that seeks to improve the lives of all Minnesotans who are blind or visually-impaired. We are a diverse group of people with a variety of visual disabilities including people who have never had sight to members just learning to adapt to vision loss later in life. We also welcome members who are fully sighted and share concerns about blindness-related issues.

Our goal is for security, equality of opportunity, and improved quality of life for all blind and visually-impaired Minnesotans. We advocate on behalf of and for the rights of people who are blind and visually-impaired. We also offer a yearly academic scholarship to assist a visually-impaired student.

We will be holding our state convention January 27 through January 29, 2023. We are seeking your assistance to help our state convention be an event that visually-impaired people in Minnesota can attend.

We have created several ways you can assist us:

  • A tax-deductible monetary gift in any amount.
  • Providing one of several Conference Sponsorship Opportunities outlined below.
  • Donating an item, product or service for fund-raising activities during our convention.

ACBM will use sponsorship funds to directly help defray the cost of attending the convention for convention attendees. Many of our members are of meager financial means and your help will make a huge difference to real people! No amount is too small. Large convention sponsorships are appreciated!
