Therapeutic Riding, Inc. is a volunteer-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Rider fees account for only a small percentage of our costs and we turn no-one away due to an inability to pay. Therefore, we rely on the generosity of individuals, community businesses, and foundations to help us provide our very special services. We receive no government funding. Approximately 75% of every dollar donated goes directly into providing programming for our riders.
Your donation is fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and you will receive a receipt for your donation. Your privacy is important to us and we do not sell or share any information.

In Lieu of Gifts
Are you shopping for the person who has everything? Consider giving a “gift” of a donation to TRI in their honor.
Perhaps YOU are that person who has all they need. Why not suggest that people donate to TRI in lieu of buying you yet another tie, candle, or tub of bath salts? Simply include information in your invitations letting people know that you would like them to donate to TRI in lieu of gifts. You’ll be making their shopping easier, they’ll know their money went to a good cause, and you won’t have to smile when you get yet another holiday fruitcake!
At TRI, we pride ourselves on giving our horses the highest quality of care and on providing a top notch therapeutic riding program. However this dedication is not inexpensive. Perhaps you can help by donating an item on our Wish List. Perhaps your company can donate services or support so we can re-direct those dollars toward caring for our horses and teaching our riders instead. Check out our Wish List (PDF) for some ideas of our most needed items. Please call before bringing out any donated items so someone can be there to meet and assist you.
