The Guide Dog Foundation is based on creating life-changing partnerships. We fulfill our mission by creating partnerships between people and guide dogs. That effort is supported and made possible through our other partnerships with individual supporters, organizations and corporations.
We welcome corporate partnerships as a means for us to realize financial support and the ability to reach more people about our programs. In turn, a partnership tie-in with the Foundation can help a company achieve some significant business benefits such as an enhanced image with customers, the demonstration of a commitment to social responsibility, the creation of product differentiation, the generation of an emotional connection to customers, and securing and retaining of valued employees.
Companies support the Guide Dog Foundation through:
* Foundation Grants
