South African Guide-Dogs Association (GDA) is a registered Non Profit Organisation and Public Benefit Organisation. GDA issues 18A tax certificates for all donations received.
Corporates can set up a payroll giving programme to donate towards GDA on a monthly basis via a small salary sacrifice (from a little as R10 per month).
We encourage companies to enquire about our Annual Car Competition. Should you wish to sell raffle tickets (R25.00 each) on our behalf then please contact NadiaV@guidedog.org.za
Become a Headline Sponsor at one of our S A Guide-Dog events. Corporates are encouraged to sponsor one of our annual events and obtain maximum exposure in terms of marketing awareness and product exposure.
The sponsoring company will receive a framed photo of the sponsored Guide Dog and will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony during the year. Your corporate can give a person who is differently-abled a life changing gift of independence, mobility and companionship.
Events include the S A Guide-Dogs Gala Dinner in October, the S A Guide-Dogs Charity Fly Fishing event in August and the S A Guide-Dogs Charity Golf Days in May and October.
Corporates can “sponsor” a Guide-Dog and encourage staff participation. One visit will be made by the puppy during the first year of it’s life to meet the staff (Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town only).
Corporates can donate product in kind such as office equipment and furniture.
Corporates can donate prizes for events such as the annual Golf Day and Family Fun Festival. We are always looking for suitable prizes.
Cause related campaigns are becoming more popular amongst our supporting companies. A small percentage each sale of a specific product is donated to GDA. This way of donating ensures positive public perception and can increase sales of your products or services. For more information kindly contact Nadia on 011 705 3512 or NadiaV@guidedog.org.za
Consider a sports event such as 947 Cycle Challenge, Cape Argus or Cape Town Marathon to raise funds for GDA.
