California Association of Blind Athletes - About Us
In 1978 Dr. Charles Buel dreamed of an organization that would provide sporting opportunities for athletes living with vision loss. He created the California Association of Blind Athletes (CABA). For many years CABA was the largest chapter of the United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA). In 1997, long after the death of Dr. Buel, CABA's 501(C)(3) status as a tax-exempt non-profit was suspended.
I am pleased to report however that as of October 15th, 2009 CABA is a legally recognized 501(C)(3) with both the state of California as well as with the IRS. In addition, as of December 21st, 2009, CABA has been re-instated as a USABA chapter in good standing.
CABA has many expenses and no money! PLEASE consider making a donation to the California Association of Blind Athletes.
