Community Partners

make a difference in your community

Community Partnerships provide access to High Hopes services and change lives.

Businesses are signaling through their philanthropy that they need to reset their relationships with nonprofits. The time is now to launch a High Hopes Community Partners program that reinforces our unwavering appreciation for local and regional businesses and engages businesses in deeper and more meaningful ways.

Community Partners will be a year-round partnership initiative. The program will offer distinct (and tailored) annual engagement opportunities that meet both the priorities of High Hopes and your company’s specific interests. We are excited to offer many opportunities for engagement, connection, and education.

For those organizations that wish to continue sponsoring a special event such as the Holiday Market, Horse Shows Days or the June Benefit, that corporate support is welcome and will be honored. The longevity of the relationship with High Hopes will be reflected in the partnership offerings.

To recognize and celebrate a business that has provided exceptional support and commitment to the High Hopes mission, an annual Distinguished Community Partner award will be celebrated.

If you are interested in building a deeper relationship with High Hopes, please call Claire Gadrow, Development Director, at (860) 434-1974 x122 or email Claire.

help us say thank you to these fantastic

Community Partners & Friends

Below you will see some of the organizations that partner with us all year round. We also recognize the many foundations that make grants to High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, and our Gala and Holiday Market Partners on those event pages.

Only 28% of our revenue comes from our corporate partnerships.

Help us increase that to 30%.

Through your generous support, we subsidize 76% of the true cost of programs. 30% of our participants receive need-based financial aid to ensure that everyone has access to High Hopes regardless of their ability to pay. 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.

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. We love to give our partners LOVE on social media, in the press, at our events, and in our programs – to us, this part of the vibrant community that is High Hopes.

While the decor and entertainment at the Gala are always amazing, due to the generosity of our partners only a small portion of dollars raised at events goes toward food, decorations, and entertainment. We thank our partners with tickets to the event and other benefits, meaning that you get to have a great time, you learn about our mission, and more of the proceeds go to support High Hopes’ participants and horses.

Our two main events of the year are our Gala, with Live and Silent Auctions, and the High Hopes Holiday Market.

Our Stories

Donating a Horse to the High Hopes Herd

Many of the horses in our programs have been donated to High Hopes. A great therapy horse is sound at the walk, trot and canter, with three rhythmic and balanced gaits. The quality of the horse’s movement is what most benefits the participant.
