How to help us

Wills and Bequests

A bequest is a special, thoughtful gift that will live on.
For 60 years, Guide Dogs SA/NT has provided safety, independence and inclusion to people who are blind for vision impaired – giving them confidence to enjoy many activities that most of us take for granted.
We value every Bequest – large or small – because Bequests have the power to change other people’s lives through the provision of much needed services.
Including Guide Dogs in your Will can be as much, or as little as you want after you have provided for your loved ones. This very unselfish and generous contribution will go a long way to put the world at the feet of so many.
If you choose to support us in this way, please let us know, as it will give us great pleasure to be able to recognise your gift in your lifetime by inviting you to be a member of our Buddy for Life Program.
Named after ‘Buddy’, the first Guide Dog ever trained, the program aims to ensure we represent the reverence of your relationship with Guide Dogs. If you need more information about making a Bequest please contact us by phoning 08 8203 8333 or through our website:
https://www.guidedogs.org.au/bequests

General Donations

Your donation will make a big difference to a person living with vision and/or hearing loss or a family with a child living with Autism!

We receive just over 30 percent government funding for the vital services we provide to the community.
You can make a difference to someone’s life. Oh, and by the way, it’s tax-deductible, too – so that’s a win-win situation.
To make a donation, however small, phone us on 08 8203 8333 or go to our website page: https://www.guidedogs.org.au/donate

Other support

By sponsoring your very own litter of pups, you’ll share their joys and triumphs, as they train for their new career – and you’ll be helping people living with a vision impairment live with greater mobility and independence and the families of children living with severe Autism, more comfort, safety and inclusion. See more by visiting: https://www.guidedogs.org.au/donate/puppy-sponsorship.

Companies and community or sporting groups can get together and host a fundraising event. It’s fun and for a good cause. See more www.guidedogs.org.au/fundraise

Small coins can make a big difference. Why not host one of our iconic Collection Dogs on your shop or café counter. Contact us and we’ll arrange for set up and collection when their tummies are full! Check out www.guidedogs.org.au/collection-dogs
