Partnering for a Bright Future

Since our formation in 1974, High Hopes has forged many beneficial relationships with local, regional and national corporations, that have been integral to our growth and stability. Most companies’ method of support has been in the form of individual event sponsorship, from Symphony in the Meadows, to the Holiday Market. Some companies have gone on to deepen their support; employees and owners have become program volunteers, board members, event planners, or have provided facility maintenance support.

By adopting a horse together, your organization, department or team will provide equine assisted activities and therapies to individuals of all ages.

Program Partners

Program partners provide a sustainable investment in High Hopes’ operational future by providing four named scholarships awarded to High Hopes participants who otherwise would not be able to benefit from our services.

Benefits of becoming a program partner include:

  • Your name displayed in our indoor riding arena
  • Recognition on the High Hopes website
  • Recognition on social media
  • Recognition in the quarterly High Hopes Rider newsletter distributed to more than 3,000 participants, families, volunteers and donors
  • Significant recognition at all High Hopes’ events and invitation to special behind-the-scenes program demonstrations



Event Partners

You can support High Hopes at various levels of financial commitment in conjunction with our annual special events, from $250 to $10,000. Only a small portion of dollars raised at events goes toward food, decorations, and entertainment. The majority of the proceeds from our events support the programs and participants of High Hopes Therapeutic Riding.

Our participants, their families, our staff and volunteers see how your organization’s support helps High Hopes’ mission day after day, week after week and year after year.
