The National Reined Cow Horse Foundation exists to
promote the reined cow horse heritage and industry, as a
supporting organization for the National Reined Cow Horse
Association. As a 501C3 Corporation, the Reined Cow Horse
Foundation provides a place for charitable giving to the
reined cow horse industry. Donations may be general, for
disbursement by the Board of the Foundation, or specific,
earmarked for particular projects.
Foundation funds Youth Activities and Scholarships, the
NRCHA Hall of Fame, historical preservation of reined cow
horse history and the NRCHA Crisis Fund, as well as other
individual projects. Donations of all sizes are appreciated,
but the following participation levels (based on lifetime
donations) have been created to recognize those who
contribute to the Foundation.
Worlds Greatest Donor $25,000.00 and beyond

Individuals and businesses may donate to the Foundation
by mailing check, money order or Visa/Mastercard information
to NRCHA Foundation, 13181 US Highway 177, Byars, OK 74831.
In addition, beginning in 2008, all NRCHA Aged Event entry
blanks will now include a section where owners may pledge a
percentage of a horse's total earnings from the event.
Foundation-funded projects are chosen carefully by the
NRCHF to be specifically those that benefit and promote the
reined cow horse industry, it's history, members and the
reined cow horses, themselves.
For any donations,
donors may specify or earmark the donation for a particular
project such as the NRCHA Crisis Fund, NRCHA Youth Fund, or
the Carri Abbona Memorial Fund.
