Philanthropy & Major Giving

Significant donations are crucial to our life saving work. Make a commitment to end preventable blindness in the Holy Land with a donation over £10,000.

Our goal is to treat and provide education to end preventable blindness in the local communities of Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

It takes the passionate support of donors like you who are willing to join us in a significant way. We are the only charitable Eye hospital in the Middle East providing subsidised or free eye-care and education to the people in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. The St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital has a rich and long history of caring for the forgotten, vulnerable, and sick. 138 years on, we proudly continue in our mission to treat patients regardless of ethnicity, religion, or the ability to pay.

Thanks to the spirit and generosity of our donors, St John Eye Hospital is a leading champion in eye-care in the region, with a worldwide acknowledgement of excellence. But we still have a lot of work to do, and care requires funding. Generous donations, of £10,000 or more, have a powerful impact, on our ability to reach those most vulnerable. One third of our patients are children, and of every pound donated we spend 91pence directly on charitable work.

You can help us provide the exceptional care and treatment for which we’ve become known. Our fundraising team are happy to assist you when considering a gift and will work with you to ensure it delivers the impact you hope to achieve.
