Corporate donations and gifts in kind
If your company prefers to support through philanthropic donations we have many exciting projects you could help fund, such as portable ultrasound scanners for our expectant guide dog Mum’s or specialised equipment for our world-renowned harness workshop. By donating to Guide Dogs, you may also qualify for Corporation Tax relief.
Name a Puppy
The most popular way for companies to donate!
With your donation, you can name a guide dog puppy and follow their journey from the moment they are born, or why not give your employees a new, exciting and rewarding challenge to fundraise towards sponsoring a guide dog puppy of their own.
We have different levels of sponsorship packages available, our most popular being the WALK package, where you will receive regular photos and 'pupdates' over the puppy's 1st year.
- Use your 'pupdates' to engage your employees and your customers*
- Share a blog or post on social media*
- Put articles on your intranet
- Boost staff morale
- Re-energise fundraising fatigue
The best bit? Experience the perfect photo opportunity when you get to meet the puppy you've sponsored!
If you hit your targets early, you can upgrade to our LEARN package for even more benefits and features.
We will fully support your team with fundraising ideas, hints and tips and we have a wide range of fundraising materials that we can send to you.
Through naming a puppy, you will really see how your staff and organisation is helping to make a difference to people who are blind or partially sighted.

Payroll Giving, or Give as You Earn, is a great way to support a charity or cause close to your heart.
The payroll giving scheme was launched by the government 30 years ago. Now, over 1.1 million people donate through their pay. Why not join them and support Guide Dogs?
Why sign up to payroll giving?
Payroll giving allows you to give directly from your salary before tax is deducted. This means that Guide Dogs will receive more than it costs you to donate.
|Your payroll giving donation pledge||£5||£10||£15|
|As a 20% tax payer you pay||£4||£8||£12|
|As a 40% tax payer you pay||£3||£6||£9|
|Guide Dogs receives||£5||£10||£15|
You can change your donation at any time by informing your payroll department.
You will then receive a letter from Guide Dogs to thank you for your support, plus regular updates from the charity to show how your donation helps us improve the lives of people living with sight loss.
