Sponsor a Student
Funding Sources - 2018
Each summer, we serve over 100 students across 8 weeks of programming and provide paid employment to advancing Detroit youth as Junior Staff. We are committed to the continued expansion and deepening of our program offerings, and thanks to the support of our community, we are building a sustainable, long-term program that will partner Detroit youth with horses for many years to come.
Did you know that it costs DHP $500 per student to offer our one week of summer horse camp? That’s $7,000 per week of camp. Detroit Horse Power is funded entirely by donations, foundation grants, and sponsors, allowing us to provide these high-impact opportunities to at-risk youth at no charge.
Furthermore, we’ve been lucky enough to experience outstanding growth since our program’s inception just a few short years ago. The chart below outlines the overall programming hours we’ve been able to provide for youth, showcasing steady growth since 2015-16.
With our growth comes the inevitable - a dramatic increase in financial needs. With the above needs in mind, we invite you to grow your support by making a tax deductible donation towards expanding the number of students we serve at this year's summer camp. Sponsoring a student empowers our continued and deepened growth, ensuring that youth will continue learning from and building on equine partnerships, both this summer and for years to come.
