Community Fundraising

Our local community plays an important role in helping people living with blindness or vision impairment in Western Australia. We rely on the support and generosity of people like you to raise funds to support the training of our Guide Dogs to help West Australians with blindness or vision impairment to live independent, rich and rewarding lives.A Community Fundraising event

“A Guide Dog gives independence to a person with vision impairment. And what a great gift to be able to provide for someone.” – Sean, Community Fundraiser and Sponsor of Koha.

Fundraising with Guide Dogs WA is easy and a great way to make a difference and get your local community involved in supporting a worthwhile cause. Anyone can fundraise and we’ll support you along the way.

Some fundraising ideas you might like to consider:

Active/Extreme

Create your own Guide Dogs WA online sponsorship page through Everyday Hero. Don’t forget to share it and let us know about it!

Social

  • Hold a bake sale
  • Host a morning tea
  • Host a pancake breakfast
  • Host a Dining in the Dark dinner

Work/Corporate

  • Dress-down day

Step Into Someone Else’s Shoes

  • Spend 24 hours in a blindfold

Get Competitive!

  • Host a poker night
  • Hold a golf competition

Gifts In Lieu

If you’re celebrating getting married or reaching a milestone birthday, why not create an In Celebration page through Everyday Hero and ask for donations instead of a gift?

Help us to transform lives by providing Guide Dogs to West Australians who need them.

“My brother who still lives in the UK has a degenerative condition and has been losing his sight for the past 15 years. He is awaiting a Guide Dog and that is often the subject when I speak with him over the phone. That’s when I got the idea of raising money for a charity that supports the blind and to help someone who is in the same position as my brother.” – Sean, Community Fundraiser and Sponsor of Koha.
