Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to save horses from unfortunate situations. To do this we need to be able provide them with medical care, good nutrition and training.

When they are ready our goal is to help them find a loving, forever home. We need to promote them as available for adoption and screen adopters to make sure they have the best possible match.

In the event that a horse is unable to be placed, our goal is to continue to provide them a home at the rescue.

We also aim to raise public awareness of the plight of rescue horses, their needs and how they can help.

In order to rescue horses in need of help we need to, in many cases, provide "bail" money to pull them from a kill pen. We sometimes do fundraisers for bail money for specific horses, using social media. That has worked fairly well for several of them.

Fundraising is essential to providing the ongoing medical care and training.

When a horse is at the point where they are ready to be adopted we spread the word through Facebook groups, word of mouth, on our website and through ads.

We raise community awareness through several public events throughout the year, on social media, volunteer appreciation days, through children's programs and in press releases.

Our organization is fortunate to have stall space and access to training facilities on site.

We use two excellent veterinarians, an outstanding farrier that has helped save two of the horses lives through his work, as well as an equine dentist. Several members of the organization have horse training experience.

Through the generosity of our donors we have been able to provide the horses with good nutrition and care.

We are also fortunate that the farm we are stabled at supports the rescue and has the capacity and willingness for holding larger events.

Our board of directors offers a vast array of skills that are of great benefit in moving our agenda forward.

Since our inception we have grown each year in many ways. The number of lives saved and re-homed, our donor base, number of volunteers and our event attendance have all continued to increase over the previous year.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
