We run a very efficient operation on a shoestring budget. Because of that, it does not take much for you to help these horses. $5 can feed 1 horse for a week. $20 can de-worm a horse. As little as $400 can bail a horse out from a kill pen. We are happy with whatever you can afford to donate, and will work our hardest to make sure it helps these horses.
We are a very ethical non-profit organization. This is a labor of love; we do not take a salary as part of our work to save these horses. Our staff is made up of volunteers, our administrative fees are almost non-existent, and we have no immediate plans to spend money on advertising as part of our fund raising. Over 99% of every donation goes directly into helping the horses, and any money we receive from adoption fees goes directly back into the pool to rescue and tend to horses.
We are registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so any money donated is tax deductible*. Our EIN is 82-3636166, and we can share our letter of determination with anyone who requests it.
If you would like to make a cash donation, please use our PayPal link below. Please check to see if your employer has a charitable match program, as that is an excellent way to maximize your donation.
We also accept donations of equipment, which is usually tax deductible as well*. If you have anything you think would help us save these horses, please email HawkinsHorseHaven@gmail.com.
*We are just horse lovers; we are not accountants. Please consult one if you are not familiar with the IRS rules for deducting gifts to non-profit organizations
A note about third-party fundraisers
There have been many scams involving third-party fundraisers, where the organizers have kept the donations for themselves instead of forwarding the funds to the charity they are supposedly working for.
Hawkins Horse Haven currently does not permit any third-party fundraisers. All monetary donations are only accepted through our official Facebook page, or this website. Any future fundraisers that partner with Hawkins Horse Haven will be listed on this page to ensure that any money you donate is going exactly where you expect it to.
Please help us fight fraud by contacting us at HawkinsHorseHaven@gmail.com if you see any third-party fundraisers claiming to be raising money for Hawkins Horse Haven.
