Your Legacy.
Our Shared Future.

A legacy plan empowers you to complete the work in your heart, assured that nothing in your estate is wasted, that no one is left out, and that every dream is fulfilled.

-Carol Karsch

A true friend is someone who shares the same passions, is there when you need help, and genuinely cares about you. Thank you for being our friend!

Because of your friendship and support the Israel Guide Dog Center has grown from a simple dream to an organization that is critical to Israel and its people.

We don’t take your friendship for granted. We value you and the things you’re passionate about including Israel, dogs, and our collective future. And through your trust and support, we hope to sustain, expand, and ensure the long-term success of our program and organization.

Maryem & Riga

“Riga is my big love. I’m never alone and I’m so happy. Riga is calm, and she calms me as well. She is perfect!”

A Story of True Friendship

Maryiem is a bright and energetic 19-year-old who trained for the 2022 Jujitsu European Championship as the only blind competitor.

She trains for two hours a day, six days a week, as well as acclimating to her first year at university. She is able to accomplish all of this thanks to her guide dog Riga!

Mariyem was born with retinal detachment in one eye and lost vision in her other eye at the age of 10. She gradually realized that she needed to live her life to the fullest and take responsibility not just for herself but for another being too.

And taking care of Riga has helped her mature and grow as an independent woman.

The Legacy Society Wall in Israel

When you leave a legacy gift from your estate, your generosity will have a lasting impact and we will permanently add your name to our “Visionaries Wall”.

“Each of us has a name given by the mountain and given by our walls. Each of us has a name given by our celebrations and given by our work” -Israeli poet, Zelda

In 2020, we built our Visionary Wall to honor those who remembered us in their legacy plans. These names allow us the opportunity to reflect and honor the generosity of donors that were committed to changing lives, addressing our future needs, and supporting our mission to create a more just an equitable society.
