Holiday Fund-A-Need Campaign Begins December 1st!

December 1, 2017

Our annual fund-a-need campaign kicks-off on December 1st. Every year we run this campaign, and every year you respond with incredible generosity that helps us improve the lives of the visually impaired.

Our Puppy, Nursery, Veterinary, Kennel, and Student Services Departments all have Wish Lists of items that they need. We also have a number of sponsorships available. All of these items make it possible for us to continue to provide an invaluable service to the visually impaired community in the United States and Canada. View all Fund-A-Need items by clicking here.

Plus… It’s a tax deduction and the end of 2017 is just around the corner!

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.
