Grants and Fundraising Programs
EQUUS is a great organization to apply for grants as well as to work with to increase grant funding through their Grant Enhancement Program. This organization also offers many wonderful recognition programs including a humanitarian award (focused on equine humanitarian achievements) that is jointly sponsored by EQUUS and The United States Equestrian Federation.
Per their website: “The EQUUS Foundation, Inc., a federally tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, is dedicated to improving the quality of life of horses, enabling the therapeutic use of horses for those with special needs, fostering the horse-human bond, and educating the public on the horse’s unique ability to empower, teach and heal. Grants are awarded only to charitable organizations that are classified by the Internal Revenue Service as 501(c)(3) public charities, and in some instances, government agencies or entities. All organizations must meet all our eligibility requirements to apply for a grant.”
