What You Can Do To Help!
For the Sake of the Horse!
TO MAKE A DONATION
Organize a Fundraiser project!
This can be a trail ride, an auction, or a raffle, or anything which will make you money. There have been many different events across Canada, from barbecues and suppers, to Read-a-thons, to selling items like chocolate bars, and the ever-popular totebags.
Anyone can be a fundraiser! The sale of these and other such totebags has raised several hundred dollars for EFC.
The EFC will give a monogrammed horse cooler to any group which raises more than $750 to benefit the Foundation. The cooler may be presented to the individual who brings in the most money, for example, or it can be used to raise even more dollars by auctioning or raffling it off.
WIN AN EFC COOLER!
WE RODE FOR THE EQUINE FOUNDATION!

Use every opportunity to tell horse enthusiastseverywhere about the Equine Foundation and
the work that it does. Spreading the word, can be as simple as handing out brochures at your
local horse club and explaining just what the EFC is all about, to putting up a booth.

The Memorial Fund
Donations may be made, in lieu of flowers, to the Equine Foundation in Memory of a relative or friend. The name of the deceased is included in “The Book of Memory” which is maintained by EFC in a book form as well as on this Website. When the donation is received, a card is completed and sent to the Family and a Tax Deductible receipt is sent to the Donor. The Equine Foundation may also be listed in an obituary as the Charity of Choice for memorial donations.
Many persons wish to Honour that Special Horse, Dog or other Pet. A Donation to the Foundation will place the name of that equine friend or other pet such as dogs and cats, in ‘The Book of Memory’. Provide a photograph of a horse or pet and we will include it in ‘The Book of Memory’ as .
For those already listed, a photo may be added at no additional cost. Just scan the photo and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Memorial Donations for Horses and Pets should be sent to: Equine Foundation of Canada, a/c Susan Nelson, 326 Dyke Rd., R.R. 2, FALMOUTH, N.S. B0P 1L0. The photograph may be sent with the gift, or a scan may be sent directly to email@example.com. Minimum donation to include photo is $25.00.
Special Occasion or ‘Just Because’ Fund
We all have relatives and friends who have everything. Why not make a donation in their name to EFC? Upon receipt of the donation, a suitable card is sent and you receive a Tax Deductible receipt. And many times we may just want to support the cause and help our horses.
Items for Sale
Who’s Watching Who?
THE EQUINE FOUNDATION OF CANADA HAS COPIES OF THE LIMITIED ADDITON PRINT “WHO’S WATCHING WHO” AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.
The original water colour was done specially for the Equine Foundation by artist Graham Flatt of Millet Alberta and was raffled off at the CMHA Annual Convention in March of 1999. All proceeds from the raffle and from the sale of the prints go to the Equine Foundation. The 300 prints were signed and numbered by the artist.
The print is 14 by 19 (picture size) with a white border and name printed on the bottom. The main colours are blues and greys with five Morgan horses looking at the viewer.
The cost is $55.00 per print plus $7.00 shipping. Payment must be sent with order. (Mailing is done in a tube and insured)
Since completing this print, Graham has gone to painting full time and been most successful with the sales of his originals at shows as far away as Colorado. The value of this print can only increase as the artist becomes more popular.
