Running our ranch and providing valued services to our clients is an expensive task. EquiStar relies heavily on donations to keep costs low for our clients, provide scholarship opportunities, and make sure the amazing ride never ends. All donations are tax deductible.

General Fund

As Equi Star, Inc. continues to grow, so does our financial need. A donation to the General Fund keeps all the behind-the-scenes work going to ensure a fantastic finished product. Gifts to our General Fund help us pay for utilities, insurance, training, Special Olympics, work experience programs for special needs individuals, and administrative needs.

Sponsor a Horse

An ongoing, annual donation of $2,500 to our Horse Support Fund will help us to care for our wonderful horses. To commemorate your gift, an attractive plaque with your name(s) will be displayed on the stall of the horse you've sponsored. You can also co- sponsor a horse with an ongoing, annual donation of $1,250.

In Honor

Make a gift in honor of a beloved family member or friend.

In Memory

Memorialize a loved one with a gift in their name.
