Programs

The Foundation provides financial support through the award of grants to equine-related charities across the United States; operates a network of equine organizations and equine enthusiasts; provide scholarships to reward volunteer service, and conducts information outreach to educate the public about horses. The Foundation funds programs which are directly involved with horse rescue and welfare or are providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) to the public. The Foundation also operates an Alliance to address national areas of common interest in the equine community. Since 2003, the Foundation has awarded $1,885,000 in grants with over $270,615 in grants awarded in 2011 to 72 organizations. Our carrots4acause network meets the need for voluntary support by bringing together interested individuals with equestrian and horse-related organizations across America. Since its launch in October 2010, over 550 organizations are taking advantage of the free services. CHAMPIONS is our equine service volunteer program to reward individuals on the network with scholarships. Since its launch in January 2012, individual signups have increased by 800% with 1,200 individuals actively participating as volunteers.
