Donor Spotlight: Two Very Special Ladies and a Very Special Gift

A daughter wanted to fulfill her mother’s wishes, and Guide Dogs of America was honored to be the recipient of a gift of more than $1 million. The daughter made the gift anonymously in loving memory of her mother.

Both mother and daughter have been long-standing contributors to GDA and have generously supported several programs and fundraising projects over the years. Their donations include sponsoring puppies-in-training; purchasing donor bricks that contributed to improvements around the GDA campus; sponsoring kennel and building enhancements; funding facility upgrades to the Puppy Pre-school and Head Start programs; gifting needed items for various departments; and donating items to our silent auction and Ride for Guides.

Through the years, the pair traveled many times to attend GDA’s open houses, graduations and other fundraising events across the country. Additionally, the daughter has included GDA in her estate plans, which offers GDA an ideal future gift.

Guide Dogs of America is privileged to benefit from the generosity of these caring individuals. Both gifts to our endowment will continue to support our mission to place extraordinary guide dogs with the visually impaired to enhance their lives.
