The operations and administration portions of our 2016 budget total approximately $210,688. Fees that we charge riders (on an ability to pay basis) cover about 23% of this figure. The remainder needs to be raised through grants, donations from corporations and individuals and our own fundraising projects. Our operations expenses involve instructors’ salaries, horse care, facilities rental and maintenance, equipment purchases, insurance and volunteer training. Eos has benefited from the generosity of many individual donors, corporations, the United Way of Columbia County and others, and private foundations.
The volunteers, staff, and families at Eos also work hard through a variety of fundraising projects to raise the necessary funds to continue our special work. A summary of the 2018 budget of Eos Therapeutic Riding Center is presented below.
