Leave a gift to Guide Dogs NSW/ACT 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 gift can transform someone's life

A gift in your Will 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, these types of gifts have helped thousands of Australians with vision loss to live a life that they choose.

So whether large or small a gift in your Will is greatly valued because it ensures that when someone loses their sight, they don’t lose their freedom and independence as well.
