You Can Change the Lives of New Yorkers

Ways to Give to GallopNYC

Financial support is critical to the well-being of GallopNYC and our life-changing programs. Your contribution means a child can develop greater fine motor control, become more empathic and engaged, develop verbal skills, gain core strength – benefits that carry over into their everyday lives. It means that an adult can master independent tasks like the ability to take a shower by one’s self. It means that seniors can overcome isolation, finding community, intellectual stimulation, and healthy movement. And it means that veterans can overcome PTSD and carry the ability to relax over to their families and jobs. Click on the icons below to explore different ways to support GallopNYC.

We routinely need equipment for our horses, riders, volunteers, and staff to provide effective lessons to our students. 

The ideal therapy horse is sound, has an unflappable temperament and unlimited heart. And our Horse Heroes Society is a great way to support them.

Sustain your favorite  GallopNYC horse through a year long Guardians sponsorship or join Champions — our recurring giving program.

Please note we cannot accept any used riding helmets due to safety compliance.

Rider Jeanne, wearing a purple jacket and riding helmet, sits on a horse with a white blaze on his nose. Jeanne participates in a balancing activity, hands up in the air. She is assisted by two volunteers, one lead walking the horse and the other spotting.

Many NYC people need help to live a full, productive life:

  • One in 20 school-age children across the U.S. has a disability
  • In NYC, there are 1.6 million people living with disabilities
  • One in 88 American children has some form of autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

But so few families have the resources to help:

  • 1 in 5 NYC residents is now living in poverty
  • Families of a child with an ASD earned an average of 28% less than those with children with no health limitations

And Insurance and Government resources are not sufficient:

Having an autistic child is estimated to cost a family $10,000 to $50,000 a year in out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatment, therapy, and education.

The NYC Department of Education has reported that as many as 40 percent of students in New York City recommended for special-education services may not be getting them.
