Trusts and foundations
Working together with trusts and foundations enables Guide Dogs to provide transformational services for people who are blind and partially sighted. We truly appreciate all our supporters donating through their trusts and foundations, and a gift of any size can be put to work as soon as we receive it. Our long-term relationships with trusts and foundations, communities and partner organisations mean that our services are sustainable, effective and address the needs of people with sight loss.
Our experienced Trusts team will work with you, offering a bespoke experience keeping you involved at every stage, be it funding a project, a programme or service delivery. We can help you decide the most relevant funding area which is appropriate to your trust and will keep you fully informed of how your gift is transforming lives with regular updates. We particularly welcome unrestricted donations, which are invaluable to our work and can be used where the need is greatest.
In 2019, donations from Trusts and Foundations have funded mobile dog units, guide dog training, breeding guide dogs, adult mobility sessions, CustomEyes Books, our children's book service, family recreational days and many community-based and national one-off projects.
If you are a Trustee or know a Trustee of a relevant trust or foundation, we would love to speak to you about how you can get involved in our work.
