We rely on the support of people like you to provide our vital services to Queenslanders, including our incredible Guide Dogs. With your help, we can ensure more people with low or no vision are able to lead independent and meaningful lives. Join us to make a difference.

It costs quite a lot of money to raise and train Guide Dogs, so I try to donate my time when I can to help collect as many funds as I can. Every small part helps to make a difference to this wonderful cause.

As the organiser of an event there are a few things you can do to ensure it is a paw-some success, but we are also here to help! The following guidelines are a good starting point for your event:
Registering your event
Your fundraising activity should only proceed once you have submitted a Fundraising Registration Form and received approval from Guide Dogs Queensland, along with a Letter of Authority.
A Guide Dogs suppawter logo is available to help you promote your event. If you choose to use this logo on any promotional material, you will need to follow our usage guidelines and seek approval prior to uploading or printing it.
You will be responsible for ensuring the safety of the event, including organising appropriate public liability insurance and providing first aid services if required.
Until your fundraising is completed, you need to make sure all funds are kept in a secure place and full records of income and expenses are made. All funds must be banked with Guide Dogs Queensland within 14 days of the event taking place.
