The AAEP Foundation is unique in that 100% of each gift goes directly toward our mission and is not used for any administrative or fundraising costs. Each gift is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law.
The AAEP Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, is the charitable arm of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). Like its parent organization, it is dedicated to the welfare of the horse and unites everyone who is dedicated to improving horse health and well being. Contributions are used specifically to support research, education, benevolence and the equine community.
The Foundation’s responsibility to donors is guided by the Donor Bill of Rights and the Foundation is committed to the highest ethical standards. Since the Foundation does not provide legal, tax or financial advice, all donors will be encouraged to seek their own legal or tax counsel before making a gift.
The AAEP Foundation has a strong commitment to transparency and is proud to be a Silver-level participant of GuideStar. This allows institutional funders, donors, professionals, and the general public to have up-to-date, reliable data about the Foundation. GuideStar is a public charity that collects, organizes, and presents the information for the public in an easy to understand format. Through this participation, the Foundation has the ability to reach GuideStar's 8 million annual visitors as well as millions of visitors to such partner sites as Facebook Causes, Network for Good, Change.org, various donor-advised funds, and more.
