TYPES OF FUNDS

Unrestricted

You want your charitable gift to accomplish the most to improve the quality of life for horses as well as the quality of life for people through horses. You believe as conditions change, a group of citizens from the horse community will be best able to assess the current charitable needs and to be creative and flexible in the grantmaking. All unrestricted donations will go to the foundation's greatest needs

Field of Interest

You are interested in a particular field (e.g. youth, education, research, horse welfare, therapeutic riding), but you do not want to restrict the grants to be made over the years to any specific organization serving that field.

Designated

You have a favorite charity or organization that you would like to support. You, thus, designate the specific charity or organization that is to receive the grants.

Donor Advised

You may recommend distributions within the IHCF funds and to other charitable organizations.
