Help Us Keep the Gates of Equine Outreach Open
Posted 01/01/16: Behind these gates wonderful things happen...first and foremost for the equines in our care, and also for the volunteers who come from different backgrounds and means to help them. All of that is now in jeopardy.
Beginning this year, the lease payments on our ranch have increased substantially. To meet this obligation, we are launching the Keep the Gates Open campaign, with the goal of raising $62,500. That amount will cover the lease, insurance and utility expenses for all of 2016. Without that funding, the gates of Equine Outreach will have to close.
Equine Outreach is entering its 13th year of operation because of the dedication and generosity of its many volunteers and donors.
Please give any amount you can...let's Keep the Gates Open!
Equine Outreach Inc. (EOI) is an all-volunteer, private,
non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Tax ID# 51-0484049
UPDATE: A Sign of the Times...And Another Challenge
Posted 07/18/16: The generous donation by internationally renowned artist Doug Bloodworth of the hand-painted signs that grace our barn embodies the enthusiasm and support for what we do at Equine Outreach. Many people have generously stepped up to help our horses and in doing so have come to understand how the horses can give back.
To continue doing that, our challenge is to raise $62,500 for the Keep the Gates Open campaign. We are currently at $52,935, or 84 percent of the goal. Again, thank you to everyone for your wonderful support.
And, as happened earlier in this campaign, another donor who wishes to remain anonymous has issued a challenge to help us achieve our goal. This couple will match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500. More people helping horses will put us in striking distance of our goal, and will allow for our horses to return the favor.
We're at 84% of our goal of $62,500 to Keep the Gates Open.
