Old Friends provides a dignified retirement and sanctuary to horses who racing and breeding careers have come to an end. We couldn’t do what we do without you, and we hope you will continue to support Old Friends by making a donation to help our 175 retired equines. Here are several ways to make a difference for your Old Friends:  

Join the GoodGiving Challenge
Now in its seventh year, The GoodGiving Challenge is an online giving campaign specifically designed to help non-profits like Old Friends.  Since 2011, the Challenge-- a partnership between Blue Grass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing-- has raised over $7.1 million for local charities through a campaign of collective giving. Donors can contribute via GoodGiving until December 31 and they can also set up as “Ambassadors” for Old Friends and ask their friends to contribute in their own online campaign.  Click here to donate via GoodGiving  #goodgivingchallenge

Donate on Facebook!
Check out our new “Donate” Button at the top of our Facebook page!  You can donate directly to Old Friends and the best part is that Facebook is not charging platform fees for donations.  Also, YOU can create your own Facebook Fundraiser for Old Friends!  Click here for info     Share the Giving!

Take Part in the Old Friends Hay-llelujah hay drive via CrowdRise!
Make a tax deductible donation (through January 3rd) via Old Friends’s CrowdRise/Newman’s Own hay drive campaign and help us reach our goal of $10,000.  It might be lovely weather for a sleigh ride together but the winter season is tough on horses braving the elements, and they need constant hay to stay warm. We have 175 retirees, and each can consume a bale or more per day when the weather turns arctic. (If you did the math, that's well over 5,000 bales a month!) With your tax-deductible donation this holiday season we can be sure that our hay will come! Even cooler—the Newman’s Own Foundation is donating $500,000 to this Holiday Challenge to be given as prizes to participating non-profits.   Click here to donate for the hay drive     Click here for more info on Newman's Own Challenge

The PayPal Giving Fund
The Paypal Giving Fund is celebrating the holidays by adding 1 percent to all donations made between November 28 and December 31, 2017.  No fees!  (You can make a specific donation, too – like honor someone or support a specific horse through our share program. Just email us to let us know where to apply your donation as there is no spot to make a note in PPGF page.)    Click here for the Paypal Giving Fund

We thank you so much for your continued interest and support!
