This series of day-long professional workshops is aimed at helping equine rescue and sanctuary operators improve their skill sets in four critical areas: fundraising, board development, best practices and coalition-building. Funded by a generous grant from the Rosalind and Franklyn Schaefer family, the workshops will be held in 14 locations across the nation, enabling as many equine rescuers to attend as possible.
