Year End Giving

For over 45 years the Christian Ophthalmology Society (COS) has existed because of the generosity of its members and others to actively Share Christ’s Light through Caring for Sight!  We are grateful that you are a part of our mission.

The COS is a 501C3 nonprofit international society of eye physicians and surgeons who confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. To continue to help Christ’s light to be seen here in the world, we welcome year-end tax-deductible donations. 

NOW is the time to participate in Sharing Christ’s Light through Caring for Sight and DONATE to the COS!  Click here to make a Year End Tax DONATION to the COS.
