Ways to Help the NFB of Kentucky
Funding the NFB of Kentucky
NFB BELL Academy
The NFB BELL Academy provides children with Braille and nonvisual skills instruction through fun, hands-on learning activities.
The NFB BELL Academy—which stands for National Federation of the Blind Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning®-is a nationwide (United States and Puerto Rico) summer program that prepares blind and low-vision children to grow into confident and independent blind people who live the lives they want.
Activities are provided in a day program in Kentucky. In addition to Braille crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, interact with blind adult mentors, and enjoy field trips to sites related to the NFB BELL Academy curriculum. Through these activities and interactions, the children learn that blindness or low vision does not define them or their future.
NFB BELL Academy typically runs Monday through Friday for six hours each day for two weeks.
The NFB of Kentucky Cameron Fund was created to help people attend convention to promote the business of the National Federation of the Blind.
The General Fund is used to fund the activities, goals, and educational scholarships of the NFB of Kentucky.
