Your thoughtfulness ensures that we can continue providing our equine-assisted intervention and healing services free of charge, allowing us to make life changing impact in the lives of children. Without your generosity this would not be possible. On behalf of all the kids and horses at Equine Alliance, we thank you.

– Lori Harmon, Equine Alliance


We appreciate your willingness to be a part of powerful, positive changes associated with youth mentoring. – Anna Boyd-Bucy, Big Brothers Big Sisters SLO Co.


Our sincere thanks for your generous contribution to the Music Education Program of San Luis Obispo and to scholarships for underserved children for our Strings in the Schools program. Receipt of this grant will help to ensure that children on the central coast will have music in their lives, a gift that is more and more important as our school systems continue to delete fine arts programs from the curricula. – Jim Black, executive director, San Luis Obispo Symphony
