Special Projects

Gift Book Project

We are able to offer all students K-12 who read Braille and reside in Western New York State, a free book each year as a New Year gift.

Summer Reading Gift Book 

The Braille Group of Buffalo is once again offering a gift book to each of our Western New York students in grades K-12. We will be accepting requests until May 30th. The student must reside in a zip code starting with 14***. Please select a book from our book list at our web site or choose from the list of new selections in the sign up form. Students may choose a book in EBAE and UEB. 

National Diabetes Material Project

Each Braille reader who is Diabetic or caring for someone with Diabetes, may choose 3 selections from our brailled Diabetes collection. We request a donation equal to the print copy. (eg:  for a cookbook of Diabetes recipes that costs us over $400 to produce in Braille, we ask for a donation of less than $18.) Contact us for more information.

National Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts Project

We are currently transcribing the Boy Scout & Girl Scouts manuals and handbooks into Braille. Contact us for more information.

Western New York Scholarships
