Workplace and Employee Giving
Guide Dogs for the Blind is proud to participate in workplace giving campaigns nationwide linking generous employees with the opportunity to improve the quality of life for people who are blind. By donating to Guide Dogs through an employee giving campaign or your company's matching gift program, you truly can say, "I gave at the office." You can contribute to these programs with a one-time gift or through ongoing payroll deductions; contact your company's human resources department to learn about workplace giving programs.
I understand that Guide Dogs participates in employee giving campaigns. Which ones, and how do I enroll?
- United Way: Write "Guide Dogs for the Blind" on your form to choose us as your charity of choice.
- Combined Federal Campaign for Federal Employees: Select #10970, Guide Dogs for the Blind's Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) number, on your federal campaign pledge form.
What is a corporate matching gift program? How do I participate?
