Annually, Lift Me Up! serves approximately 200 students and provides approximately 3,000 lessons. We are able to make a difference in people’s lives largely as a result of a cadre of dedicated volunteers who provide nearly 10,000 service hours annually. Unfortunately, their hard work is not enough to maintain the program.
The cost of caring for our kind horses, rider equipment and stable maintenance is considerable. While we do charge a nominal fee to riders, we keep this cost low to ensure that all riders have an opportunity to participate in our program. Your contributions are essential to sustaining and growing our program.
Lift Me Up! is a local 501(c)(3) charity that relies on public support. Rider fees reflect half of the actual cost of providing lessons. Our riders rely on your support to continue to receive affordable lessons. Your donation helps enable a child or an adult with a disability to ride.
Lift Me Up is registered as a charitable organization at AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com.
