There are many ways to support Envision’s work besides cash donations. We’ve suggested some great ways to help here for supporters. For those who can donate directly, there are many ways to do that, now, or in the future.
Creative giving options listed here are just some of the ideas to ensure your gift goes as far as possible to change lives with the help of horses.

Turn that gift you’re not sure you need into needed funding to Envision deliver The Next Generation of Therapeutic Horsemanship to Valley of the Sun families! Sell unneeded presents on eBay Giving Works and donate a portion or the entire final sale price to us. It’s giving back without giving it back.
1) Register as an eBay seller http://ebay.com . If you are registered already, log into your eBay account and click “Sell.”
2) Look for the “Donate a percentage of sale” field in the Sell Your Item form (It’s in the “How you’re selling” area. If you don’t
see it, click on the “Customize Form-Format” link and select “Donate percentage of sale”).
3) Choose “Select a new nonprofit.”
4) On the next page that appears, type “Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship.”
5) When “Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship” appears, click “Select.”
6) Choose a percentage you wish to donate to us.
7) If this is your first eBay Giving Works listing, you will be prompted to create a MissionFish account (the nonprofit that powers eBay Giving Works).
It’s as simple as that! If your item sells, our organization will receive the percentage you selected to donate or $5 (that’s the minimum donation amount per listing that sells), whichever is greater. You’ll get a fee credit for the Final Value and Insertion fees equal to the percentage you donated.
Once you get going you will find that folks may bid higher knowing that a percentage of their final bid goes to charity. So, it’s a great marketing tool, too! Everyone is a winner: you are able to support your favorite charity, Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship; get rid of unwanted items in your home; market your stuff; even make some money and receive a receipt of your donation for tax purposes.

Many companies enable employees to record their charitable gifts at company online sites, while others require us to complete printed forms. If so, please request their matching gift form and send it along with your donation or at year-end, as directed by your company. We will complete and return the form to your company. It’s a great way to double your generous gift!
Volunteer Hours Grants
Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs created to encourage volunteerism in communities where employees live and work. Through these programs, companies provide monetary grants to organizations where employees volunteer on a regular basis. Companies either provide a set monetary donation for every hour an employee volunteers or provide grants once employees reach certain thresholds. Fortunately, many companies now offer an electronic submission process or easy to use form.
