Ways to Donate
Make a Donation to CHAMP
Riders support only 25% of the costs of the program. The remaining 75% is raised by fundraisers, grants, and the generosity of the many people and organizations who donate to the program. Think of the four legs of a horse – riders pay for one leg and CHAMP needs to raise money to support the other three legs!
CHAMP downsized during the COVID 19 shut-down. Now we are revitalizing and rebuilding the program. To meet the current need, Champ must increase PATH certified staff, add horses for the therapeutic program, and expand funding from donations and grants.
We are very grateful to accept your tax deductible contribution of cash, materials or services to help support our many programs.
Become a Horse Friend
CHAMP horses are friends and therapists to their riders. They provide a strong back, and a non-judgmental, supportive presence. These exceptional horses are chosen and trained to manage the typical sights and sounds of a lesson - many helpers, a mounting ramp, wheelchairs, unusual movements, and often shrieks of joy from their riders.
CHAMP provides these wonderful horses with excellent care, including high quality feed and bedding, grass turn-out, blankets, well-fitting tack, veterinary and farrier services, and medicines and nutritional supplements. CHAMP is also committed to taking care of these horses should they require treatment for illness or injuries.
Donations by Horse Friends directly support CHAMP horses. We will send you a photo of your CHAMP horse and recognize your donation on our website and other media.
We welcome your pre-arranged visits to meet your horse, and see the plaque with your name, or the name of your child or honoree on his or her stall
$10,000 or more supports all routine expenses for a CHAMP horse for a year.
$350 - $700 per month pays for half- or full board for a CHAMP horse
