Q: Can I designate where I want my gift to go?

If you wish to make a designated gift, simply let us know at the time of making the donation to what area of the program you would like your gift to go. Contact Guide Dogs of America to find out more about designating your gift, options and areas for gift designation, and other related details. Another great way of designating where a gift will go is by giving through our Sponsorship Program.

We do not have a Financial Statement available on disk or through e-mail. It must be sent through regular mail.
