Many companies recognize the importance of corporate responsibility. Guide Dogs of America volunteers are encouraged to contact their company’s Human Resources Department to see if they may apply for a volunteer grant. These grants are usually based on the number of hours an employee volunteers at a nonprofit organization. For example, often times companies consider all of the time our puppy raisers spend with their GDA puppy as eligible.
GDA puppy-in-training Kali and her volunteer puppy raiser Brian Harris are pictured on her first day accompanying him to work at Bank of America. Thanks to Harris’s volunteer hours, GDA benefited from Bank of America’s Volunteer Grants Program.
