Inspired to Give

A one-time gift to the USPC Annual Fund supports all areas of Pony Club educational opportunities.

Any donation, no matter the amount, helps Pony Club provide an educational program of horse management and riding to members across the country. Through this programming, our members are granted opportunities to develop leadership skills, character, and confidence, all while working as a team with others as they care for their horses and ponies.

The Annual Fund is one piece of the entire funding puzzle that keeps the organization running. This fund fills in the gap between what member dues cover and what it costs to serve our members by offering the Pony Club program. The Annual Fund allows USPC to keep member dues and event fee increases to a minimum, while expanding programming and opportunities.

What does the Annual Fund support?

The programs below are supported by the Annual Fund, although to varying degrees. These resources and programs created by USPC impact Pony Club members and volunteers—from the club/center level to the national level. Therefore, donations to the Annual Fund are important for the continuation of these programs and resources, and for the development of new ones.
