How You Can Help

You can help too

Xenophon provides many ways for you to  directly make a difference in the lives of  the special children that participate in our program.  There are many ways to volunteer; coming and helping directly with our lesson program, helping with fundraising events, or keeping our ranch in working order.   As a non-profit, we could not exist without the generosity of our donors and sponsors.  Through the many avenues of donating, you can help bring these equine-based therapies to any family that needs them.  Xenophon receives no government funding.  In order to keep lessons affordable, we underwrite each and every lesson.   To do this, we rely on the  generosity of individuals and companies, supported by grant writing and fundraising efforts.  No family is turned away for inability to pay.  Eighteen percent of our riders receive additional financial assistance.  You can directly help these children in need to ride.  Please check out the other ways that you can help:

  1. Give a donation directly or in honor/memory of a loved one.
  2. Sponsor a child’s lesson through scholarships.
  3. Sponsor an event or a horse
  4. Give an In-Kind Donation
  5. Give a donation of tack
  6. Donate a horse
