Make a Donation

Annually, LiftMeUp! 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.

LiftMeUp! 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.

100 for $100 Campaign

Join us and raise funds to help keep our horses happy and healthy!

The “100 for 100” campaign kicks off this summer and will run through the end of the year, and is a fundraising program specially created to enable friends and family of LiftMeUp! (you!) to support the care of our horses by donating just $100.

Many of our horses are aging and are working their second (or even third) careers. Along with the patience, experience, and wonderful temperaments our horses have grown into with age, comes the need for additional supplements, medications, special shoes, and other necessities to keep them sound and happy. Some may have extra veterinary needs that accompany being a little bit older. Additionally, all horses need vaccinations, deworming medications, and regular dental care to stay healthy.

We are looking for 100 caring supporters to donate $100 to raise a total of $10,000 to help with their care and health needs for 2019. If you wish to donate, please donate by clicking on the Paypal button above.
