Donate Property in the Four-Wheel Drive Area
The Corolla Wild Horse Fund currently has 40 acres in a permanent conservation easement, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Jay Bender. If we are to provide a safe haven for the future, much more land is needed to sustain the herd. The fair market value of land donated to a nonprofit is typically tax deductible for the donor. Help us maintain important habitat for the horses and all wildlife through a gift of property or make a tax deductible contribution to the Freedom Fund (a restricted fund for the purchase of land for the horses). Call the Executive Director, Karen McCalpin, for more information.
