Giving Tuesday



Now, more than ever, we are called upon to make a difference

Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for our community to come together, FOR ONE DAY, to support a future where professionally trained Guide Dogs, Autism Service Dogs and OSI-PTSD Service Dogs are changing lives.


Giving Tuesday is on November 29, 2022!

Giving Tuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up for an issue you care about, or give some of what you have to those in need. Over the past nine years, it has since grown into a global movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. 


Matching Donations!

BC & Alberta Guide Dogs is proud to announce our partner in giving … The Canadian Tilling Foundation!

On Tuesday, November 29, The Canadian Tilling Foundation will MATCH DONATIONS received via the Giving Tuesday campaign up to $10,000!!


 Below are the top three ways you can get involved with Giving Tuesday.

1. Spread the word

Be part of the spirit of philanthropy by telling others about Giving Tuesday. Boost the message by sharing our stories on Facebook and our eBlasts. Or, share your story: tell us why giving is important to you or how someone else’s kindness and generosity have impacted your life.

 Pro Tip: Use the hashtags #bcandalbertaguidedogs #givingtuesday #changinglives

2. Engage in a challenge with your community

Host an event or activity in support of your fundraising efforts!

 Pro Tip: Anyone can make an impact on the lives of others. Build your community of philanthropy among your friends, family or coworkers by inspiring them with your participation in a challenge or inviting them to join in.

3. Make a gift on Nov. 29

Whatever amount you can donate, $5 or $50 or $500, your gift will help increase our ability to breed, raise, train & place our certified Guide & Service Dogs! It takes up to two years and more than $35,000 to breed, raise, and train a Guide or Service Dog. Your generosity changes lives.

 Pro Tip: Mark your calendar. Giving Tuesday starts at 12 am on Tuesday, Nov. 29 and finishes at 11:59 pm!
