Giving to Therapeion
"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Most of our budget goes directly to our student programs, but student class fees cover only 30% of our expenses. We depend on donations and sponsorships to make up the difference. That is why supporters like you are so important to Therapeion!
Therapeion relies on donations and sponsorships from individuals, families, foundations, and corporations to help fund its programs. Thank you to all who have supported us in the past, and thank you for your future support.
The DONATE (one-time gift) button will allow you to give a gift through PayPal or by credit card. Donations of any amount are always appreciated! Your generosity helps us to continue to provide quality services to our clients. (Please note that if you donate by credit card, a percentage of your gift is applied to the credit card company’s fees. If you would like 100% of your gift to benefit Therapeion, you may send a check to the address shown below.)
Need a suggestion for an amount? Start by seeing our sponsorship levels below.
Need other suggestions? Currently, it costs about $4,000 per horse for one year of feed, board, vet care, and other expenses. Think about donating enough to sponsor one of our horses for a month (or two!). A full scholarship for a student for the summer or fall classes is $320 and a half scholarship is $160. However, any amount is helpful and gratefully received!
Additionally, you can "give continuously" (and painlessly) when you shop at Amazon Smile or Pay Less (Kroger) supermarkets. Just sign up with them to link your information and free money arrives to support our programs!
At different times in the year Therapeion can use everything from office supplies to building materials. If you would like to make an in-kind donation please contact us to see if we can make effective use of what you might be able to provide.
Therapeion's Sponsorship Levels
$10,000 and up
This is the highest level of sponsorship, for donors who want to make a long-term impact on Therapeion's programs. Support at this level maintains multiple horses, finances scholarships for a whole year, and can even help to add new horses to the program as older horses retire.
These donors are making an impact each year. At this level, a donor is supporting one horse for a full year, student scholarships for a full session, and some of the utilities (keeping the lights on!).
Donors at a full gallop are supporting one of the ponies for most of a year, contributing to stable fees, or helping cover class space improvements.
These donors are helping us cover month-to-month operational costs, including veterinary fees, insurance, telephone, and emergency repairs.
Donors at a trot are providing horse care and food for 1–2 months for one horse. Alternatively, these donors are covering four to six student scholarships in a class session.
These donors are helping us generally, to fund necessary expenses such as insurance, phone, farrier fees, care for tack, ...and helping to pay for this website!
These generous donors have provided us with materials or services to support Therapeion's mission. We greatly appreciate their support, and we encourage our friends to consider them for their own business needs!
Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501(c)(3) so all donations are tax deductible. Help us make miracles happen in the lives of our participants and families with your donation!
