Guide Dogs of America is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Seventy-five percent of all our funds raised during the fiscal year is available for Program Services, 14% for Administrative Costs, and 11% for Fundraising (figures based on the 2015-2016 fiscal year).

We do not charge guide dog recipients or their families any fees for our services, which include: a guide dog and instruction in their use from our professionally licensed trainers, room and board at our campus for the 21 day instruction period, a specially designed harness, follow-up care, vet care from our facilities and travel expenses when requested.

With the increased independence, mobility, and confidence a guide dog provides, blind individuals are better able to compete in the work force, participate in community activities and travel.
