Leaving a Bequest to Guide Dogs in your Will
The Gift of a Guide Dog
Have you ever wondered how a Guide Dog can transform someone's life?
When Liz began to lose her sight at age 33 it left her feeling anxious, uncertain and alone.
It's only through a generous gift that a supporter left to Guide Dogs in their Will that Liz was matched with her beloved Guide Dog Poppi.
Now, with Poppi by her side, Liz is no longer afraid to leave her house or catch public transport; simple tasks that we take for granted.
Your bequest can transform someone's life
A bequest is the greatest commitment that you can make to help Australians with vision loss.
In fact, did you know that two out of every three Guide Dogs are made possible thanks to people like you, who have left a bequest to Guide Dogs NSW/ACT in their Will?
It costs over $35,000 and two years to breed, raise and train one Guide Dog and it’s only through these life-changing gifts that these amazing Guide Dogs continue to be matched at no cost to those who rely on them to lead an independent life.
Over the years, bequests left to Guide Dogs NSW/ACT have given thousands of Australians with vision loss the freedom to enjoy life, embrace new experiences and reach their goals.
But we need your help!
Every day 28 Australians are being diagnosed with uncorrectable vision loss and of those, 9 will become blind.
If you remember Guide Dogs NSW/ACT in your Will, your bequest will help to train more puppies to meet this growing demand for Guide Dogs in our community.
Every Guide Dog that you help train will mean a new life for someone with vision loss – a life filled with freedom, independence and the love of a loyal and trusted companion.
