Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies heavily on the kindness and generosity of others. Without our network of friends and supporters all over the nation (and in other countries!) we simply could not keep functioning.
Many opportunities exist for you to help our herd. Everybody has a unique gift or talent, and we hope you will embrace the opportunity to give back in a way that is convenient, fun, and rewarding. Below you will find the many different ways you can help us!
Donate. With your tax-deductible donation, you will contribute towards our horses’ hay, medical needs, supplements, farrier trims, facility upkeeps, and the labor involved in properly caring for them. Make your contribution here, or check out our donation menu to take a closer look at what you can buy with your donation!
Volunteer. Do you want to get up close and personal with the horses? Do you want to be part of a strong family, work hard, and have loads of fun while doing it? Have we got the place for you. Volunteer with us and you just might find your life changed by these horses. For more information about our volunteer program, click HERE.
Sponsor. As a sponsor of one of our horses, you will become an intricate part of the Tierra Madre family. Sponsors commit to at least one year of sending a stipend amount at one of our sponsorship levels. You will receive a welcome packet with a photo of your horse and quarterly updates on how they’re doing and how your money is helping. Our sponsorship levels are: Bronze – $25/mo, Silver – $50/mo, Gold – $100/mo, or Diamond – $200/mo. You are welcome to make auto payments or in full for the whole year. The best parts? You’re making a difference in the life of one of our horses by guaranteeing their feed, medical, and/or farrier costs AND it’s 100% tax-deductible. Contact Leah at leah.tmhs@gmail.com
Take a horsemanship class. Have you always loved horses but never really learned much about them? If you’re looking to learn about how a horse’s mind works along with how to approach, halter, groom, and walk horses, consider taking a horsemanship class with us! One hour sessions are a $25 donation per person, and each donation goes to our horses’ hay, medical care, labor, and facility upkeep.
Plan and run a fundraiser. From car washes to bake sales, skating nights to simply sitting outside of stores with a donation jar, every penny earned from these functions add up! Please contact us today if you’re interested in planning a fundraiser for Tierra Madre.
