Make a difference today!
As we reflect upon the activities of 2017 and contemplate opportunities for 2018, we are profoundly grateful. We are grateful to NCEFT’s skilled professionals, whose knowledge provides hope to our patients and clients. We are grateful to our horses, whose unique qualities impart a sense of acceptance and connection. We are grateful to our volunteers for their dedication and selflessness.
We are grateful for the world-class equine-assisted therapies that result in healing and recovery for our patients. And we are grateful that people such as you encourage our efforts to bring horses, hope, and healing to children, adults, military Veterans, and First Responders with a range of physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges.
With over 69,000 people with disabilities residing in San Mateo County alone, plus hundreds of thousands more in Santa Clara and San Francisco counties, the need for our programs continues to grow. Although NCEFT delivers about 5,000 patient sessions each year, benefiting more than 125 people every week, we must maintain a waiting list. Currently, more than 70 children and adults are awaiting treatment that could make a profound difference in their health and well-being.
Donations fund 70% of our programs. Did you know that the average patient payment for a single equine-assisted therapy session is $115, while the actual cost to NCEFT to provide that therapy is over $250?
Your support today helps cover the unfunded portion of therapy costs and brings us one step closer to achieving our mission of helping those with disabilities reach beyond their boundaries.
Only through the kindness and generosity of our donors can NCEFT exist.
In return for your compassionate assistance, NCEFT holds itself to the highest standards of professionalism, efficiency, and fiscal integrity. When you donate to NCEFT, your contribution is put to use promptly and wisely in support of our patients’ needs. Eighty-seven percent of every dollar spent at NCEFT is dedicated to maintaining the excellence of our programs.
Join us in celebrating the tradition of giving and the beauty of the season, and please accept our deepest appreciation of your support.
