Thank you for considering a gift.

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.
