You Make The Difference!

Strongwater is a privately-funded, charitable, nonprofit organization that relies on foundation grants and contributions from corporations and individuals such as you to fund nearly two-thirds of its yearly operating budget. Although Strongwater utilizes its many volunteers and in-kind donations to keep expenses low, the cost of feed and proper care for our herd of 12 specially trained therapy horses, maintenance of our facilities, and support of our PATH certified instructors and staff is costly.

Each year, Strongwater serves more than 250 individuals, from children age six to adults of all ages, who benefit from demonstrated improvement in their cognitive, emotional and/or physical well-being through Strongwater’s PATH certified equine-assisted therapies and programs. What they all share is the compassionate support they receive from Strongwater physically, mentally and financially.

Your gift, at any level, makes all the difference by allowing Strongwater to continue to provide financial support and life-enhancing experiences for all of our participants.  

Thank you!
