Make an impact: Invest in a scholarship today.
Thank you for making futures brighter as you invest in the power of extraordinary dogs, transforming the lives of veterans.
Our dogs transform lives and you can, too.
When you support our educational scholarship program, you make an impact and open doors of opportunity for our dogs and the veterans who need them. You invest in their future and give back to our community. Perhaps you have a wonderful memory of a pet or a loved one, or want to esteem your family name.
Establishing a named scholarship at the sustaining or endowment levels provides a unique opportunity to pay it forward while honoring the memories and family. Our scholarship program helps Southeastern Guide Dogs offer all of our Paws for Patriots dogs at absolutely no cost to the recipients. These dogs change the world for veterans, and with your help, we can do more.
