DATA FOR INCLUSION FUND
Research data and Artificial Intelligence systems shape policies and advance drug discoveries. While algorithms help guide medical care, many are biased or use outdated scientific rationale to adjust patients' scores based on race, according to some reports.
The DATA FOR INCLUSION FUND invests in responsible research projects that build cure discoveries as well as open research projects that expose social and economic barriers faced by the blind and visually impaired community.

There is a perception that people who are blind or visually impaired are limited in what they can do in their career. With today's advancements in technology and treatments, the barriers to employment have started to come down, however low employment rates of blind and visually individuals remains at 37%.
We believe that we change the narrative by supporting programs and organizations which catapult the academic achievements of the blind and visually impaired students, K-16; design new curriculum highlighting innovations in Eye-Care related fields; and provide hands-on and in-the-field work experience which directly benefit the blind and low vision community.
The Fox Family Foundation welcomes the opportunity to partner with nonprofit organizations focused on this particular challenge.
