Pegasus Special Riders, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization providing equine assisted therapy to physically, mentally and/or emotionally challenged individuals from Stephenson, Lee, Ogle and Winnebago counties in Illinois. We charge a nominal fee of $120 per 6-week session to help with upkeep and maintenance of the horses and facility and a once a year fee of $35 for insurance on the rider. Our volunteers and instructors graciously donate of their time and talents in order to keep the cost to the student at a minimum. Presently, we only owe money on our building, with the land and equipment free and clear.
We rely on the generous donations of our contributors, fundraisers, as well as limited funding through grants, which are becoming less available as corporations are cutting costs wherever possible or are ceasing to exist.
We now are able to offer a safe, secure, online donation option through PayPal, a widely used online payment service using your Credit Card.
If you would like to donate to Pegasus Special Riders, we welcome your heartfelt generosity and would apply the funds to one of the following areas:
- Scholarship for one student for one 6-week session (120.00)
- Feed and maintenance of horses
- Maintenance of Facility
- General: As Pegasus sees fit
Any amount is appreciated, and you will be listed as one of our donors in our newsletter published in February, May, August and November.
