The Grange provides opportunities for individuals and families to develop to their highest potential in order to build stronger communities and states, as well as a stronger nation.

We LOVE Visitors!
Iva May V., Lecturer for the Willakenzie Junior Grange, and Roberta S., from the Goldson Grange (both in Oregon) visited DFD a few months ago to learn more about DFD. The Grange is a fraternal organization, founded in the 1860's. Grange members provide service to agricultural and rural areas on issues of economic development, education, family endeavors, and legislation. Granges and their members across the country are encouraged to donate to the work of DFD through various fundraisers.
On September 11, 2012, DFD welcomed Susan N. (pictured below), a Master of the Oregon State Grange, who toured our Central Point, Oregon facility.
"Enclosed is a donation from the Oregon State Grange to match an earlier donation made by the Granges from Lane County. We are honored to help support DFD and the wonderful things you do."

"Dear Robin - Since the National Grange Convention a year ago in Michigan, we have been sharing Dogs for the Deaf items and information with Granges, relatives, and friends. Enclosed are some pictures we took of you and Bonsai."
~ June & Wib J., Ohio
"Again this year, Maplewood Grange elected to give five percent of our total rental income from the operation of our Grange to your dedicated organization. We feel you are doing some truly good works, not only for your clients, but also for the four-legged friends. We enjoy reading about the activities of your organization and the news related to the gifts of these dogs to the various individuals. Hopefully, we can continue to be involved in this work."
~ Robert T., Master, Maplewood Grange #662, Oregon
"Enclosed please find a check for $500.00 from the Washington State Grange Deaf Activities Fund. This fund is supported by contributions from Granges across the state of Washington. Please use the donations toward training and caring for dogs that will be used to assist deaf people."
~ Tom G., Director of Health, Hearing & Safety
