Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options. Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact.

There are many opportunities to provide support to the Dog Guide program as a partner or sponsor. Sponsoring a Dog Guide will cover a portion of the $35,000 that it costs to raise and train a puppy and ultimately match with its handler. Your support will help the Dog Guide team be partners for as long as 10 years, with a life-time of follow-up. Your sponsorship can be directed to the program of your choice.Partnerships & Sponsorships
