We're Here to Lend a Helping Hand!

EQUUS Foundation

We hope that you and your families, friends, and colleagues remain hopeful during this unprecedented time in our lives and you are doing what you can to also keep our all our four-legged friends safe.

At the core of our mission is our commitment to invest in equine charities across the nation that are dedicated to saving and re-homing America's at-risk horses and providing opportunities for people to partner with horses to improve their physical, emotional, and social well-being.

These are troubling times and many among us are facing serious financial hardships. We know that many equine charities have had to close your doors to their volunteers and cancel much-needed fundraising events and programs -- the lifeblood of all charities to sustain their operations. But, the horses still need to be fed and cared for.

Guardians We want to take this opportunity to remind equine charities that our Transparency Awards program provide grants to help underwrite the direct costs for horse care. Only equine charities that receive the 2020 Guardian Seal of Transparency are eligible to receive financial support from the EQUUS Foundation.

Attention all Equine Charities: April 30 Deadline
The deadline to submit your Guardian information is April 30. We hope you will make every effort to meet this deadline so that we stay on track -- but, we will be flexible if you need extra time.

Keep your Spirits Up!
We are working hard to reach our fundraising goal for our fiscal year ending August 31, 2020. Please be assured that we, like so many other organizations, will be creative in finding ways to support the horses we love that need us and depend on us every day.

We applaud our Guardian charities for their dedication to the highest standards for horse care and to public transparency and accountability. We are more committed than ever to continue to invest in our Guardian charities to ensure that donations are being used for programs with the greatest impact.

Thank you for your courage and grace in facing what seems like insurmountable obstacles. You are not alone! We will make it through this together!
