Why fundraise?

Every contribution helps us to support people with low vision or blindness.

We rely on the support of our amazing community and fundraisers just like you. Thanks to the efforts of fundraisers, we can deliver life-changing services to people with low vision or blindness, and breed, raise and train the Guide Dogs of the future.

Whether it’s fundraising with your school, your colleagues or mates, or at a sporting event, we’re on hand to help you reach your goal.

Plus, we’ll ensure you have a great time while you do it too!

Participate in PAWGUST

Fundraise for Guide Dogs by grabbing your furry friend and walking for 30 minutes for 30 days during the month of August!

PAWGUST is the perfect way to improve your fitness, spend some quality time with your dog, and help raise funds for Guide Dogs so we can support people with low vision or blindness.

As a PAWGUST fundraiser, you’ll also receive exclusive rewards for you and your pooch.

Don’t have a dog? Don’t worry! You can still get involved in PAWGUST by doing a 30-minute walk per day on your own, virtually or with a friend – or donating to one of the many PAWGUST participants.
