Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies to promote equestrian-related activities on the national level. Eligible programs include equine health research, education, scholarship, and other broad-based needs. The Funding Source's mission is to support national-level breeds and disciplines.

USA Equestrian Trust’s financial support has been dedicated largely but not exclusively for purposes that are productive across several national-level discipline and/or breed boundaries, such as equine health research, and which may facilitate national-level equestrian interest and competition. Grants are also frequently made to organizations with programs focused on education, scholarship, and other similar needs of a broad-based nature, at the national (as differentiated from international high performance) level.

One of the paramount factors in analysis each year is emphasizing applications in which the end-recipients of funding demonstrate actual need, and programs for which the applicant organization’s own resources are demonstrably insufficient. USA Equestrian Trust encourages organizations or individuals whose projects fit these standards to apply.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

USA Equestrian Trust grants are designated only for nonprofits registered with the IRS. All organizations applying must be recognized by the IRS and be in receipt of an IRS determination letter.

Government organizations may also apply.

Given the Trust’s mission to support national-level disciplines and/or breeds, the organization traditionally has not funded applications from equine rescue and therapy programs.

Pre-Application Information:

USA Equestrian Trust's grant application period for 2022 is now open. It will close at the end of the day (11:59 p.m. Pacific Time) on Wednesday, April 27.

Historically, the USA Equestrian Trust board meets to consider grants during the same month as the deadline and expects to announce its decisions in the following month. However, the board always reserves the right to alter the timeline. All applicants, including those not approved for funding, will be notified of the board’s decisions.

The Trust allows organizations to make multiple grant requests during the same grant application period.
