Thank you for considering a gift to the Guide Dog Foundation.

You can feel confident that your tax-deductible donation will be put to good and immediate use to help place specially trained guide and service dogs free of charge to people who are blind, have low vision or have other special needs.  It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place one guide dog; however, there is never a charge to the individual.

The Guide Dog Foundation relies on contributions from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs, and foundations who support the work we do; and your contributions are tremendously valuable to our program.

If you have any questions about making a donation to the Guide Dog Foundation, please call our Development Department at (866) 282-8045 or (631) 930-9050.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift benefit that doubles – and, in some cases, even triples – your gift to the Guide Dog Foundation.  Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees.  Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to the Guide Dog Foundation, making it go further. 

Check with your company's HR office to see if they offer gift matching. (If they don't, you may want to ask your company to start one.)  If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should be able to provide you with a matching gift form to send to the Guide Dog Foundation along with your donation.
