Fund-A-Need for GDA!

Guide Dogs of America’s Puppy, Nursery, Veterinary, Kennel, and Student Services Departments all have Wish Lists of items that they need! We also have a number of sponsorships and commemoratives available. And we’re offering the opportunity for you to spend a day with our trainers.

This holiday season think outside the box!

GDApupswithChristmaslightsInstead of struggling to decide what to buy for someone you love, how about making an online contribution to Guide Dogs of America in his or her honor? Your generous gift will help the school and allow you to bring your loved ones into a world you care deeply about.

All of the items in our Holiday Fund-A-Need Campaign make it possible for us to continue to provide an invaluable service to the visually impaired community in the United States and Canada.

Plus, your donation is a tax deduction and the end of 2014 is just around the corner.

Spread the Word! GDA’s Holiday Fund-A-Need Campaign runs through December 14.

Please share this campaign with your friends and family! A post about #FAN on Facebook, a tweet, or an email will help. If you tell two friends and they tell two more friends, then we’ll have a very successful campaign.

Please note: This is NOT an auction. Everything in our Holiday Campaign is either “Fund-A-Need” or “Sponsorship.” Simply put, your donation will be used to purchase items for use by Guide Dogs of America.
