Our Donors

Our most gracious appreciation to our recent Donors

Marion Therapeutic Riding Association could not even begin to provide the services we offer if not for the generous gifts of our donors. This page is devoted to recognizing these valuable people and businesses and we will try to keep it as up to date as possible.

If you wish to make a tax-deductible contribution to MTRA, whether a donation in-kind of services or materials or in much needed funding, please download a Donor Form or use the secure Donation button on this page.
