Riverwood Events

Matching Grant Opportunity

We are excited to announce Riverwood has received a matching grant to support our commitment to providing a forever home and top quality care through the end of life for all our therapy horses! Now through August 1, 2017 a generous individual who is moved by the impact of Riverwood’s equine-assisted programs will provide us 50 cents for every dollar that is donated, up to $5,000. The funds raised through this match will support the continuing care of Riverwood horses currently in retirement or rehabilitation. This is a unique opportunity to raise $15,000 to benefit our equine heroes in 2017. We hope you will be inspired to help Riverwood meet our matching grant goal by making a donation by August 1. To donate to this campaign, you can mail your gift to the farm with the memo “matching grant” or donate online here. We are thankful for your generosity!
WHEN: Now Through Aug. 1, 2017
