Leader Dogs For The Blind Names Grizzard Direct Response Fundraising Agency Of Record

Grizzard Communications Group, Inc. was named direct response fundraising agency of record by Leader Dogs for the Blind. Grizzard will work with the organization’s development department on integrated, multi-channel fundraising programs.

Grizzard was selected because of its full-service agency capabilities, and its expertise creating dynamic, integrated fundraising campaigns. Grizzard works with many of the top local animal welfare organizations throughout the country, and pioneered direct marketing fundraising for animal care organizations almost 40 years ago.

“We are excited about working with the Grizzard team,” said Melissa Weisse, chief philanthropy officer of Leader Dogs. “We selected the agency because of the innovative work they are doing with animal care organizations, and the success they have achieved. Their strategic guidance will help expand our base of support, and the people we are able to help. We look forward to a rewarding partnership with Grizzard.”

According to Grizzard Vice President Tonie Howard, “We are proud that Leader Dogs for the Blind selected us, and excited about our new role with them. We look forward to collaborating on integrated fundraising campaigns to support their amazing work for people who are blind or visually impaired.”

Leader Dogs for the Blind provides a variety of services to people who are blind or visually impaired to empower their ability to travel independently. Services include guide dog training, orientation & mobility (cane travel) training, audible GPS training and a summer leadership camp for teens. Their life-changing services, provided free of charge thanks to generous donations, open the door to independence, safety and self-worth for Leader Dog clients.
