FUNDING INNOVATIONS IN
UK SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
TO ELIMINATE BLINDNESS
BECOMING A SPONSOR
Prior to 2020 the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute was funded entirely by Tej Kohli and by the Tej Kohli Foundation, which continues to provide the majority of funds and to underwrite all costs, so that every single pound that is received by the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute can be allocated into grants.
But to eradicate poverty blindness is a substantial undertaking that will require many partners and funding. Therefore, the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute is now accepting donations from corporate partners who wish to become part of the 2035 mission to end poverty driven corneal blindness.
Corporate sponsors are invited to directly fund and name a grant, as well as to take a seat on the Advisory Board of the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute to make on funding decisions. Follow the Tej Kohli Cornea Institute on social media for further updates and partnership opportunities:
