2020 Campaign
Calling all Canadian Optometrists!

The Canadian Optometric Education Trust Fund (COETF) is challenging all Canadian Optometrists to donate $2020.00 by the year 2020.  This is your opportunity to give back to your chosen profession and contribute to scientific advancements in the optometric field.


The COETF supports ground level development in optometric research by giving grants to qualified applicants who are doing valuable research. As health care becomes more of an issue in Canada all of this research and development will be invaluable. Your donations will go directly to the COETF Awards Program and directly contribute to the advancement of optometry in Canada.


Those who donate $2020 by the end of 2020 will be considered PATRONS of COETF and receive a certificate and COETF pin. You will also receive a charitable receipt for your donation. The top donor will have an annual award presented in their name and the opportunity to identify the criteria for submissions. Donations made through CanadaHelps can be entered as a one time donation, annual recurring donation, or a monthly recurring donation.

The COETF is self-funded by optometrists. The Trust Fund is opening doors for new ideas that will resonate throughout the profession. The charitable donation you give now will go a long way to making us stronger and better equipped to face the future of health care in Canada.
