Marcia Goodman knew Guide Dogs of America was a special place when she attended an Open House on the GDA campus in the late 1970s. It was after she saw the incredible training and partnerships that are created between human and canine that she decided to become a Partner in Trust. "I love dogs, and when I saw firsthand the independence a guide dog can bring to someone who is blind or visually impaired, I knew GDA was a worthy organization," said Marcia.
Marcia has designated a bequest to Guide Dogs of America in her trust and knows her future gift will impact so many in need. "When I heard about the expansion of the school helping veterans and individuals with autism, I think it is one of the most worthwhile charitable enterprises, especially since these dogs are provided at no cost to their recipients," said Goodman. After working for 32 years for the California Superior Court System, she is delighted that her contribution makes the gift of an extraordinary service dog possible to those who need them the most.
