Horse Donation / Lease

PARDS’ herd is the backbone of our organization. PARDS is very fortunate to benefit from the generosity of many horse owners who contact us when they are seeking a new home for their equine friend. Manny, Holly, Jinx and Finale are just a few of our herd who have joined our program through donation.

It is sometimes necessary for us to seek out horses who have very specific skills and attributes in order to maintain a well-rounded herd for the benefit of all of our riders and often, these horses are not available as a donation. You can sponsor and name these horses.

Planned Giving

There are a number of great options to choose from when selecting what form you would like your planned gift to take. Bequests and gifts of Life Insurance are types of planned giving and there are different tax benefits associated with each type of gift. A planned or legacy gift to PARDS ensures you’ll continue impacting the lives of so many into the future. To learn more about how to set up a legacy that will have a lasting impact on children and families in our community, please talk to your financial advisor.

PARDS is a registered charitable organization that depends entirely upon fundraising contributions, donations, grants and tuition to fund programs and operations. PARDS has been operating since 1984 as a result of this generous support. Whether a capital donation, an in-kind donation, a silent auction item, sponsoring a horse or subsidizing the registration fees for a rider, we can help you find a creative way to help. We provide charitable tax receipts for qualified donations.

Thank You For Your Support

PARDS could not exist without the generosity of sponsors and donors. Words might not suffice to thank them for everything they do but we hope they find their thanks in the eyes and faces of the children and adults who work with the horses here. Every sponsor of PARDS is helping make a direct positive impact on hundreds of lives. Our thanks to you.
