Lending a hand when it is needed most is a quality that so many
equestrians possess. Donations to these various funds will be put
to excellent use. And knowing that you have made a difference in
someone’s life is a reward that only you can give yourself.
Please take a moment to learn more about each of these charitable
funds and how you might be able to help.
The United States Equestrian Team Foundation is a non-profit organization which is
primarily funded by individual contributors like you who want to support our country’s
international horses and athletes. Every dollar you give brings U.S. athletes closer
to victory in international competitions such as the Olympic, Pan American and World
In order to be prepared for future disasters the USEF has initiated a
permanent USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund and requests contributions
from individuals and organizations.
Having originated during the aftermath of Hurricanes Rita and Katrina
the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund was formed to help ensure the safety
and well-being of horses during trying times. Money donated to the USEF Equine
Disaster Relief Fund is used to prepare for disasters and assists equids of any
breed who are victims of disasters including but not restricted to hurricanes,
tornadoes, floods, blizzards, and fires. Money donated to the fund is held by
the USEF in an account restricted for this purpose. "It is important to
understand this fund is a dollar in and a dollar out," says USEF Chief
Executive Officer, John Long, "nothing is withheld." Any donation to the
USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund is a timely and efficient benefit for
horses and horse owners.
