Sponsor a Graduation

Graduation ceremonies, whether virtual or in-person, celebrate newly matched guide dog teams and provide an opportunity for puppy raisers to connect with the partner of the dog they raised. Volunteers, donors, staff, and supporters share in the celebration of partnership and new independence.

Sponsor a Guiding Eyes graduation

Graduation Sponsorship

Becoming a sponsor is a great way to honor someone or raise awareness of your company while furthering Guiding Eyes for the Blind’s work to pair exceptional guide dogs with people with vision loss. Graduations generally take place in-person every other Friday, twice per month, and are open to the public. Ceremonies are also live-streamed and recorded for publication online. 


Benefits include: 

  • Your special message will be shared live with audience members during the ceremony, which is recorded and published online.  
  • You will receive copies of the bios and photos of the graduating class.
  • You are invited to attend the ceremony, go on a kennel tour, and enjoy refreshments before graduation. 


We kindly request a donation of $1000 or more to become a graduation sponsor.
