Donations Donations Help The NWTRC

You can become a part of our exciting, valuable work! Supporting our program will enable people with disabilities to enjoy the monumental benefits they receive from riding, and at a cost they can afford! The NorthWest Therapeutic Riding Center needs funds, volunteers, and in-kind gifts. You will be helping to provide lessons, construction projects, special events, and other activities.

The NWTRC is a nonprofit, PATH Intl. affiliated riding program, and is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible. The NorthWest Therapeutic Riding Center operates solely on funds from fundraising events, private and corporate donations, and a minimal tuition from its clients. The NWTRC does not receive any government grants or insurance payments.

We would love to discuss our future with you.
