More about Informed Giving Close X There are over 1,000 equine charities participating on our Equine Welfare Network. If your favorite charity is not participating, encourage them to join the Equine Welfare Network here and take the next step to be an EQUUS Foundation Guardian. Only those organizations designated as EQUUS Foundation Guardians are eligible to receive financial support from the EQUUS Foundation and are afforded a DONATE button on their Equine Welfare Network profile so that donors may make a donation directly to a Guardian charity. Guardians receive 100% of the donations; the EQUUS Foundation covers all transaction fees. Participating as a Guardian not only offers the potential for receiving financial support, it also provides critical data to safeguard America's horses now and in the future. Only 20% of our Equine Welfare Network charities have received the EQUUS Foundation Guardian designation. We know there are many organizations doing fabulous work and look forward to their becoming a part of the EQUUS Foundation family.
