The EQUUS Foundation is launching a new program to recognize volunteering in the horse world. The Champions program will offer rewards to individuals who put in their hours helping out horses via organizations on the carrots4acause network.
Carrots4acause is a free network that links volunteers and equestrian or horse-related organizations in need of volunteers. To achieve Champion status, an individual must volunteer for an organization or organizations listed on the carrots4acause network and log at least 24 volunteer hours from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31. The volunteer hours will be verified by the organization and The EQUUS Foundation.
Champions will be eligible for a drawing where the winner may select a charity on the carrots4acause network to receive an EQUUS Foundation grant. A minimum of $5,000 in one or more grants will be awarded. The drawing will be conducted on or before May 1 in the year following the close of the awards period. Champions who are in high school, college or graduate school with a 3.0 GPA or higher will be eligible to apply for Champions scholarships. A minimum of five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded.
