Fundraising for the Canine Development Center

Published in: Update - Issue 2 - 2015 »   

Let’s get social! Hosting a fundraising event is not only a fun way to support Leader Dog and the new Canine Development Center but a great way to get your friends involved as well! To date, numerous fundraisers have been held on behalf of the new Canine Center and we expect those numbers are only going to increase. For helpful tips on hosting an event, go to leaderdog.org/canine-center/raise-funds and click on “fundraising ideas list” under Host an Event.

A Unique Way to Support the Canine Development Center—myLeaderDog Personal Fundraising Pages

Want to spread the word about Leader Dog and raise money all from the comfort of your own home?

Consider creating a myLeaderDog personal fundraising page to let all your friends and family know about the largest campaign Leader Dogs for the Blind has undertaken in our 76-year history. Sharing the page via Facebook or Twitter will increase awareness about the new Canine Development Center.

Creating the page is easy—just visit leaderdog.org/myleaderdog to get started. You will be prompted to complete a basic registration form (the information will be used to create your page). Next, you can customize your page with your own story and photos (there are samples you can use, along with custom emails and templates that make sharing pages via Facebook or Twitter easy)! Sharing your page spreads awareness about the Canine Development Center and encourages your friends and family to support this amazing project!

Be sure to stay tuned to the Leader Dog Facebook page at facebook.com/leaderdogsfortheblind and events calendar (click News and Events on the left side of our website on any page to get to the calendar) to learn about events to support the new Canine Development Center.
