Please let your friends and family know about our endowment funds through the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. We actually have two presently:
The Centaur Stride Therapeutic Horseback Riding for the Handicapped Fund, initiated by Lyle and Gladys Peterson. Money generated from this fund will be dedicated to help offset daily operational expenses at the center and to help provide riding scholarship assistance for individuals.
Animals for the Disabled Fund, initiated by Doug and Lamae McCullor, is dedicated to assisting organizations that raise, train, or use animals to help persons with disabilities. It will provide help with veterinary and medical bills incurred by the animals. Currently, Centaur Stride is the designated organization for awards from this fund.
