“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” 
  ― Winston Churchill

See our great 2020 sponsors, below!



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.

80% of our budget is directed 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) and SPONSOR (recurring donation) buttons 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 Sponsor levels, below.


Need other suggestions? Currently, it costs about $465 a month per horse for feed, board, vet care, and other expenses, averaged over the entire year.  Think about donating enough to sponsor one of our horses for a month (or two!).   A scholarship for a student for the summer or fall classes is $160.  However, any amount is helpful and gratefully received!

Additionally, you can "give continuously" (and painlessly) when you shop at Amazon or Pay Less (Kroger) supermarkets.  See the blog post about how to set that up or download our one-page guide to share with others:
