Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary is a 501c3 entity that provides care for elderly and special needs horses. I placed my older horse with them a year and a half ago and have visited the facility and with the director, Lori, numerous times. It is a well-run facility by knowledgeable and caring people. They still have many needs for their 36 horses and it is a very worth cause, especially for equine lovers! Spirit Keeper is participating in a campaign to raise funds and they have an opportunity to receive a large grant if it can be matched by December 31st! – Jane Fliesbach, Rocky Mountain Dressage Society
Every year, the Give! Team makes it possible for community members to learn about and make a donation to trusted nonprofits in the Pikes Peak region by vetting and hand-selecting participants from hundreds of applications. The expert review committee vets every Give! nonprofit for solid financials, ethical practices and credible impact. They look for the nonprofits that operate exclusively in and for the Pikes Peak region, that fill unmet needs in innovative ways, and that might not ever cross someone’s path otherwise. Give helps them make their voices heard with capacity-building training provided by experts in the fields of social media, marketing, technology, data management and governance. We are VERY proud that Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary was chosen to participate in this year’s GIVE! We are very fortunate to have this opportunity and need everyone to rally around us by donating to and sharing our campaign between November 1 – December 31, 2016. We have been awarded a $10,500 matching grant which we will receive IF we are able to raise that much ourselves during the Indy Give campaign 11/1 – 12/31, 2016. Meeting this goal will make it possible for us to build a barn and loafing sheds to house the 9 horses at the sanctuary who currently do not have shelter.
