Foundation Fighting Blindness Foundation Fighting Blindness is the world's leading private research funding source for retinal degenerative diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt disease, Usher syndrome, and age-related macular degeneration. The nonprofit was co-founded by Gordon and Lulie Gund and Ben Berman in 1971 and has raised more than $725 million toward its mission. FFB has a broad network and deep domain expertise in inherited retinal diseases, a set of programs for funding discoveries and advancing them toward clinical studies, and a robust pipeline of funded projects that represent new therapeutic opportunities. The Foundation is funding startup companies and for-profit initiatives through its establishment of the Clinical Research Institute (the CRI), a not-for-profit subsidiary, which can partner to provide substantial later-stage funding for high-potential projects. The Foundation is supporting several clinical trials, and many additional gene and stem cell-based human studies could begin in the next several years.
