Raise funds

500 Festival Princesses with therapy horse Rocky

The sky’s the limit when it comes to different ways to raise funds for equine-assisted therapies at Children’s TherAplay.  

Donate your birthday
(or anniversary, graduation, or wedding)

Got enough stuff? Ask for donations instead of gifts and help change lives for kiddos with special needs.  

nullBy donating his birthday to Children’s TherAplay, and matching each donation up to $2,500, Anders raised $5,058 for the kiddos in just three weeks. He did it all on Facebook(!).

It’s supereasy. Check it out. 


GoFundMe for project close to your heart

Instead of making a list of things she wanted from Santa, a young girl named Hannah asked what was on our list.

When we told her about the holiday gifts we give the kiddos each year, she got right to work setting up a Go Fund Me page to make them possible.

Remarkably enough, Hannah exceeded her initial fundraising goal which meant that, in addition to the holiday gifts for the kiddos, she was able to purchase many everyday essentials from our wish list– $1,336 worth of items we otherwise would’ve had to purchase!

Be businesslike

T.A. Kaiser Heating & Air surprised us by asking if it would be alright to include us in their 2017 spring promotion. (The answer was Yes!)

For every air conditioning unit sold, Kaiser donated $500 to a charity chosen by their customers. The promotion worked beautifully and generated $3,000 for programs and services at Children's TherAplay. 


Nominate Children's TherAplay 

Are you part of an organization that awards funds to those making a difference in the community? We’d be honored if you’d consider nominating Children’s TherAplay.

In 2017, we were delighted to learn that, of the 200+ organizations they had served, the 500 Festival Princesses chose Children’s TherAplay as the recipient of their $500 community impact award, which is funded by Fifth Third Bank.

When Steve Alonso, Regional President of Fifth Third, learned who was on the receiving end of the check. “That’s not enough,” he said of the $500 contribution. “Add another zero.”

$5,058... That's how much we raised for The Children's TherAplay Foundation for my 30th birthday.

That’s the equivalent of 23, one-hour OT/PT treatments.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that made it happen. Amazing effort, I am truly grateful.
