Host a Party with a Purpose

Your organization, company, school or group can host a unique event with the proceeds benefiting Southeastern Guide Dogs. It’s a great way to have some fun while helping to raise awareness of our mission and raise money to help fund our programs.

Let's Get Started

Thank you for your interest in supporting Southeastern Guide Dogs! Here at Southeastern Guide Dogs, we could not provide world class guide dogs and service dogs at no cost, without the assistance of our generous donors and volunteers.

Fortunately, Southeastern Guide Dogs receives many requests from different organizations, companies, groups and individuals who are interested in holding an event, sale or promotion in their community to benefit our organization. We are appreciative of all the awareness, support and funds raised through these efforts.

In order for Southeastern Guide Dogs to support you and your fundraising event to the best of our ability, we ask that you:

1. Read the following procedures and guidelines via the button below regarding third-party fundraising.

2. Submit an application via the button below prior to proceeding with your event.
