LDB Foundation Established

Published in: Update - Issue 3- 2012 »    Listen to Article ♫

We have recently established the Leader Dogs for the Blind Foundation to serve as a separate legal entity for the Leader Dogs for the Blind Board Designated Fund. The foundation's purpose is to exclusively receive and administer funds for the benefit of, and make grants solely to, Leader Dogs for the Blind. This approach has proven successful for both for-profit and nonprofit organizations and allows for the clear direction and independent oversight of the entire Leader Dogs for the Blind Board Designated Fund.

The Foundation will accept grant solicitations only from Leader Dogs for the Blind and will only award grants to Leader Dogs for the Blind. Financial gifts and contributions should continue to be made to Leader Dogs for the Blind.

Please feel free to contact Roberta S. Trzos, CFRE, director of personal giving at 248-659- 5014 or rtrzos@leaderdog.org if you have any questions regarding the Leader Dogs for the Blind Foundation.
