Fundraising Priorities

The Foundation relies on donors like you.

Charitable support ensures our programs provide for the future of the equine industry and the wellbeing of the American Quarter Horse. Our key fundraising focus areas for the 2022/2023 fiscal year are:

  • General Operating Fund renewable annual giving provides flexibility and helps offset the cost of the Foundation’s operating budget, allowing staff to focus on executing impactful programs and initiatives.

  • Foundation Endowment is an investment in the long-term sustainability of the Foundation and helps ensure the Foundation and the Hall of Fame can operate in perpetuity without significant pressure on annual fundraising support.

  • General Scholarship Endowment has served as a core membership benefit for AQHYA youth since the early ’70s and develops future industry leaders.

  • Youth Activities Scholarship Endowment campaign seeks to endow a scholarship for youth competing in the Ford AQHYA World Championship Show and reward their engagement in AQHYA activities.
