What is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a global initiative that encourages people to donate their time and money to charitable causes on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Your Dog is Good family has a new and exciting foundation designed to help those in need… we’ve decided to extend our efforts this year and turn Giving Tuesday into Giving Week! Keep reading for more details.

Dog is Good For Good

Our new foundation’s mission is to create awareness and provide grants to organizations whose programs highlight the power of the dog-human bond and the positive benefits each has on the other.

When Gila and Jon Kurtz first created and built Dog is Good in 2008, they fostered in their company a singular business principle with their customers, vendors, employees, and partners – Always commit to doing what is right in the best interest of others. And as the community grew in numbers, that principle attracted dog-loving go-givers who also wanted to exemplify the same fun, positivity, personal growth, and action that Gila and Jon reflected.

And that is the moment Dog is Good for Good became an idea and then reality as a “granting agency” and received tax-exempt status as a 501c3 in 2021.

The Bolo Project

The BOLO Project, a program for 10-12 grade youth, creates confident, inspired future leaders and “Go-Givers™” while supporting a local non-profit whose mission is aligned with the Dog is Good for Good Foundation. The B.O.L.O Project fosters confidence and inspires future leaders through a love for dogs.
Your support grants scholarships to Dog is Good for Good’s B.O.L.O Project for “At-Risk” youth in grades 10-12 who face barriers to employment and advanced education. Plus, your donation contributes to an animal welfare service project completed by BOLO Project participants.

Get Involved

It’s not where you walk, its who walks with you.

That’s why Dog is Good for Good knows that our success depends on the inspiring work of individuals and their Dogs. Our Volunteers seek to do Good daily. These “things” can be as simple as a smile, lending a helping hand directly, and communicating with kindness and respect.

Our Volunteers lead by example in their families, friendships, neighborhoods, and workplace. They model behavior to help others so that they impact positively the world around them.

Dog is Good for Good Volunteers donate their time and energy to make a brighter, happier, and better place by having been part of the organization.
