Fundraising in the Community
We change lives with our dogs, but we can’t train Guide Dogs without funds, and we can’t raise funds without your help!
We’re always on the lookout for Community Fundraising Volunteers, to help in a range of different roles. Based at either our Invermay or Hobart office, you could be doing a range of tasks from week to week, or month to month. Whether it’s:
- hitting the road and collecting and replacing our iconic collection dogs,
- selling merchandise at a ‘pup’-up shop outside a supermarket or at an event,
- organising a fundraising activity, or
- preparing items or packs for activities
There’s always a task to do that will help our efforts to train more Guide Dogs in Tasmania, for Tasmanians. So if you love meeting new people and are passionate about helping others, this could be the role for you.
Lend a Paw for the 2019 Street Appeal!
Put Wednesday, 21 November in your diary for Guide Dogs Tasmania’s Street Appeal. To make it a success, we need you!
We want to raise over $35,000 from people on the streets of Hobart and Launceston, to help a pup become a hero. With several time-slots available, you should be able to find one that fits in with your day.
