Pennies For Puppies Fundraiser
In 2012, P.R.O.U.D decided to start a Pennies for Puppies fundraiser to help raise money for The Seeing Eye. The Seeing Eye is a philanthropy that receives contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Because all administrative and fundraising expenses are covered by the endowment, every dollar of every donation goes to support the school’s programs. The cost to The Seeing Eye for just one dog/owner partnership is about $68,000. As puppy raisers, the majority of our costs are covered by The Seeing Eye. A blind person only pays $150 for his/her first dog, and $50 for each dog thereafter. The $150 a blind person pays includes their round-trip transportation from anywhere in the U.S. or Canada, room and board during the 20-to-27 day training period at the school, the dog, its initial equipment, the student’s instruction with the dog, and any follow-up services the graduate may need once he/she returns home for the life of the partnership. You may contact any executive board member if you would like more information or want to make a donation.
