Win a Grant for Your Favorite Charity!
Three charities will be selected randomly each year to receive a grant of $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for 2nd place, and $500 for 3rd place based on their volunteers participation in the Champions program.
Sponsored by Ariat International, the Champions program is an incentive-based equine service program to stimulate and reward volunteerism on behalf of horses.

Individuals achieving Champion status become eligible to receive Champion benefits, including the opportunity for scholarships to further their academic education.

It's easy to become a CHAMPION! Just volunteer for a minimum of 24 volunteer hours from January 1st to December 31st for an organization on the network and log in the hours. The volunteer hours will be verified by the organization and the EQUUS Foundation.

Once you achieve CHAMPION status, continue to log in your volunteer hours throughout the year as there are benefits still under development that involve rewards for the quantity of service.

The EQUUS Foundation is deeply grateful to Ariat International for making this program possible.
