Support Our Work
Since 1969 Thorncroft has relied on the generosity of friends to support the work of the Farm. Thorncroft’s foundation is built on the principles of cooperation, respect and love, united under the common bond of horsemanship. We believe that the environment in which people heal is an integral part of our unique therapy, so we created a mainstreamed environment: a social atmosphere where barriers are brought down and people interact freely. We believe so strongly in the benefits of people with and without disabilities working and learning together that we created a place for those of any ability: a collaboration of effort to mend, discover, and succeed. Staff, students and volunteers with and without disabilities are role models to all by showing their ability to do a job well. Together they achieve leadership skills that cannot be provided by special needs schools or programs. The experiences gained at Thorncroft are life lessons which extend well beyond the Farm, affording them the ability to move on to higher levels they normally would not reach, such as college and career jobs.
Last year, we met our budget of $1,365,000. The budget for 2014 is projected $1,4000,000. Charitable gifts account for 35% of our operating budget. This includes funds received from private sources, foundation requests, an annual fund and special events.
