#GivingTuesday is a world-wide day of giving fueled by the power of collaboration and social media. Celebrated the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the season of giving by tuning the minds of the world community towards donating to the charities nearest and dearest to their hearts and minds.
This year, the USEA Foundation is asking for your support of the USEA Educational Programs and Safety Studies. By supporting the USEA's Educational Programs, including the Instructors' Certification Program, the Roger Haller Education Fund and Scholarship for the Education of Eventing Officials, and the USEA Young and Future Event Horse Programs, and the Safety Studies, including the Equine Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Research Study and the Frangible Fence Technology Study, you help ensure the future of these programs and the sport of eventing.
Last year, you helped the USEA Foundation meet a $25,000 matching challenge set by an anonymous donor to support the continued education of eventing officials through the Roger Haller Education Scholarship for Eventing Officials. At the 2017 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention, two course designers were awarded grants that have allowed them to continue their course design education and increase their knowledge and skill. Every rider in the sport will benefit from their expertise in the years to come and we thank you for supporting this important program.
A heartfelt thank you for your kindness. We hope you know how much the sport and the USEA values each and every single one of you.
