Host An Event

Hosting a “Third-Party” Fundraiser helps support the mission of Guide Dogs of Texas.

To schedule and event or request more information, please contact


Although we encourage third party events, all such events benefiting Guide Dogs of Texas must be approved in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserve the integrity of Guide Dogs of Texas and our commitment to raising funds efficiently and ethically.

Examples of a third party fundraiser include:

  • “Donations at the Door” house parties
  • Birthday or anniversary parties where attendees make a donation in lieu of a gift
  • Casual dress days at work
  • Golf tournaments, 5K runs, Bike-A-Thons, etc.
  • Garage sales, bake sales or book sales

Guide Dogs of Texas has limited personnel to assist with third party fundraisers.

We will be happy to provide the following:

  • Brochures and fact sheets
  • Limited marketing and publicity
  • If available, attendance from a Guide Dogs of Texas representative

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer:

  • Assistance with organizational and administrative tasks, such as taking event reservations
  • Underwriting of related costs
  • Volunteer recruitment
  • Event management
