Making a lasting difference
in the lives of people and horses
The Horse Whisperers is our named grant program for a special group of people and organizations with an extraordinary kinship with horses. The program is for donors who are inspired by the magical and powerful impact horses have on our lives.
Horse Whisperer grants may be named by the donors in honor of a family member, friend, associate, or in the memory of a loved one or a loved equine companion.

Ways to Give
The EQUUS Foundation spends significant time evaluating grant and scholarship applications to insure that your donation will make a real difference. All grant and scholarship recipients must meet the Foundation's eligibility requirements and grant making guidelines.
An Unrestricted donation is one that may be used to provide financial support to any of the grant or scholarship recipients deemed worthy of award by the Board of Directors of the EQUUS Foundation.
Field-of-interest donations are ones where the donors may designate a particular area of charitable interest for the award of a grant, such as programs focused on improving the quality of life of horses, or programs providing opportunities for horses to impact people's lives, especially people with special needs. We will work with you to define your specific interest.
