We are excited to announce that the Dog is Good for Good Foundation made the decision to transition our name to The BOLO Project. We are eternally grateful for the generosity and hard work bestowed on the Dog is Good for Good Foundation by the many advocates and volunteers.

The BOLO Project has been a significant aspect of our work since our founding in 2021. The program was created and championed by Gila Kurtz, Board Director, and Co-Owner of Dog is Good. Teens benefited from the two sessions in the summers of 2022 and 2023. These provided a clear mission, vision, and curriculum for a national expansion.

In addition to providing support to The BOLO Project, the Foundation contributed over $20,000 to other non-profits whose mission mirrored ours. These included service dog, therapy dog, and search and rescue organizations. Our community of go-givers sponsored Never Read Alone Events, Pop-Up Retail Fundraisers, and online campaigns for our strategic partner, NOMV. (

The Founding Board Members are thrilled to provide a launching pad and infrastructure for The Bolo Project to stay focused on its singular mission. Develop confident, empowered future leaders of impact.

Gila will now serve as the Board President along with a new Board of Directors who will guide the national expansion. While the name is different – what remains the same is the power of the dog-human bond and helping others Fetch a Life Worth Barking About!
