Rhynard Foundation Match
Earlier this year the Rhynard Family Foundation pledged a match grant of $25,000 to support our Horses for Heroes and EAAT programs! Thank you to everyone who has donated thus far! We are just shy of our goal of $25,000. We still need approximately $4,000 to earn the match grant that will support our Horses for Heroes program and Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT). Every donation that we receive through August 31st will be matched by the Rhynard Family Foundation. Can you help us reach this goal?  Click the button below, call us, come by, or drop a check in the mail. Remember – Ivey Ranch programs run through the generosity of our community and that community is YOU!

A HUGE “Thank You” to all our terrific donors – as of Monday, 8/28/17 we reached our goal of $25,000 to receive a matching grant of $25,000 from the Rhynard Family Foundation.  Three days before our deadline we totaled $25,456.37!

Our Mission:
Ivey Ranch Park is dedicated to encourage the interaction of those of all ages, with and without disabilities, by providing educational and recreational activities. Since 1983 we have served children and adults with disabilities but will not exclude the able bodied, since integration, inclusion and interaction are important components of our program. Serving over 200 individuals a month, our essential goals are:

  • Community integration and participation
  • Personal choice
  • Self-respect and respect for others
  • Competence and self reliance

Currently over two thirds of our clients here at Ivey Ranch Park have moderate to severe disabilities which include behavioral disorders, genetic disorders, and disabilities caused by accident or trauma. School age children come for after school, summer and off-track care. The Center also operates an equestrian facility, in-home respite services, and a Community Garden.
