How to Leave a Legacy at Guide Dogs of America in 5 Minutes

In less time than it takes to brew a pot of coffee, you can make a lasting impact at Guide Dogs of America.

Here’s How:

One of the easiest gifts you can make is to name Guide Dogs of America as a beneficiary of one of your assets, such as your retirement plan or life insurance policy. This is a popular gift to give because you can set it up by yourself. There’s no need to use the services of an attorney or financial advisor to put your gift in place.

Simple Steps to Follow:

  1. Contact the administrator of your retirement plan, insurance policy or bank account for a change-of-beneficiary form or simply download a form from your provider’s website.
  2. Decide what percentage of the account you wish to give to GDA and name us, along with the stated percentage, on the form.
  3. Sign and return the form to your plan administrator or insurance company.
  4. Tell us about your gift! It would be our honor to thank you for your support. Plus, your generosity can inspire others to follow your example.

Key Benefit: Beneficiary designations offer built-in peace of mind. Your current budget isn’t affected because you make the gift after your lifetime, and you can change your mind at any time.
