GAIT TRC serves children and adults in the tri-state area, providing equine activities and therapies at a fraction of their actual cost. Seventy percent (70%) of GAIT’s annual operating costs come from grants and other donations.
Despite GAIT’s best efforts to keep costs as low as possible, the economic situation for some participants is tentative at best and non-existent at worst. The Jean Work Scholarship Fund was established specifically to help those families who cannot otherwise participate in any of these beneficial equine programs.
Jean Work was a dedicated volunteer, board member, and PATH Intl. Certified Instructor at GAIT. Jeannie believed strongly in the benefits of therapeutic equine activities and often supported riders with financial difficulties with her own money, rather than see them turned away. After her passing, Allan and Wendy Kaplan established the Jean Work Scholarship Fund to continue her legacy. Private donations, employee matching gifts, and fundraising helps to replenish scholarship funds each year, ensuring that GAIT’s equine assisted activities and therapies continues to be accessible to all.
Your donations have helped GAIT to positively impact the lives of over 200 individuals each year!
