Donations of up to $300 by credit card or cash to Loudoun Therapeutic Riding will reduce your income up to $300. Contact LTR CEO/Executive Director for more information.

Enjoy the Benefits of Giving Appreciated Stock
Giving appreciated stock you’ve held for more than a year is better than giving cash. If you donate stock that has increased in value since you bought it more than a year ago – and if you itemize deductions — you can take a charitable deduction for the stock’s fair market value on the day you give it away. You’ll also avoid capital-gains taxes on the increase in value over time, which you would have had to pay if you sold the stock then gave the charity the cash proceeds. You can deduct the fair market value only if you hold the stock for more than a year before giving it away. Contact LTR CEO/Executive Director and your financial planner or CPA for more information.
Contribute to the Linda McGraw Memorial Helmet Fund
Linda McGraw was a dedicated LTR volunteer at Loudoun Therapeutic Riding since 2017. She was well known around Loudoun Therapeutic Riding for her spunky personality and donations of time put in to making our annual Preakness Party fundraiser a success. She also made sure that guests of our PATH International on-site workshops were well fed. After she passed away in 2020, her nursing friends banded together to create the Linda McGraw Memorial Helmet fund in her honor. Monetary donations made to this fund help LTR purchase riding helmets for those who cannot afford to purchase their own. You can contribute to the Linda McGraw Memorial Helmet fund HERE. Helmets purchased with these donations are adorned with a pink flamingo sticker, which Linda adored.
