MHI Foundation30for30small

October 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation. We have a lot to celebrate, so we decided to kick off the party a few months early and keep it going all year! Being a nonprofit - by party, we mean fundraising campaign. Between now (July 2018) and Oct. 2019, we plan to raise an extra $30,000 to support our growing menu of educational programs.

How can you help?

Donate online or mail a check. Checks should be made payable to MHIF and mailed to P.O. Box 427, Timonium, Md 21094. Please note 30 for 30 on the memo line.

Donate an item to the Maryland Million Gala Auction (proceeds benefit the MHIF). Net revenue from the auction over $25,000 will count towards the 30 for 30 Campaign.

Your generosity will allow us to enhance current programs and start new ones.

Current Programs:
Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program – Six-day program that gives youth that are serious about the industry the opportunity to survey the wide range of career opportunities.

• 4-H Horse Program Tours – Working with the University of Maryland Extension 4-H Horse Program to expose youth from across the state to the Thoroughbred industry.

• Egg Hunt on the Farm – Family-friendly outreach event that brings the public to a Thoroughbred farm in the region. A great way to fill the pipeline for our other programs!

Future Programs:
• Work Experience – We are developing a series of work experience opportunities that will give people the chance to spend significant time with experts in the industry. Participants will be paid by the MHIF and also provided with a housing stipend when necessary.

• Maryland Horse Career Day - Bringing together the employers and potential employees from across the Maryland horse industry. The day would also include educational seminars.

• Scholarships – Helping college students that are working towards a career in the Thoroughbred industry lessen the burden of student loan debt.
