Lexington, Ky. – November 23, 2021 – New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program has announced that long-time supporter D.J. Stable, LLC will match all GivingTuesday donations to the program, up to $25,000, in support of retired racehorse aftercare.
This year GivingTuesday—a global movement that encourages people around the world to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity—takes place Nov. 30.
“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to partner with this wonderful organization,” said D. J. Stable, LLC General Manager Jonathan Green. “For years our horses have benefited from being placed in New Vocations’ aftercare program, which prompted us to offer a matching fund for the first $25,000 contributed during the GivingTuesday drive. We hope others follow our lead and donate to New Vocations.”
As a nonprofit organization, New Vocations relies almost entirely on support from donors to carry out its mission to rehab, retrain and rehome retired racehorses. The program has rehomed more than 7,500 horses into experienced, loving homes since its inception in 1992, and the need for its aftercare services continues to grow after a record-breaking year.
“We’re so grateful to D.J. Stable, LLC and the Green family for seeing the importance of aftercare and stepping up to support our mission,” said Anna Ford, New Vocations Thoroughbred Program Director. “Thanks to their generosity, we have the potential to raise more than $50,000 by December 1, which would have a significant impact on our retired racehorses’ journeys to their next chapters. The more funds we raise, the more horses we can help find new homes, new purposes and new beginnings”
To ensure GivingTuesday gifts are matched and have double the impact, interested individuals are asked to donate by Nov. 30 at https://giving-tuesday-new-vocations.causevox.com/. For more information, contact Anna Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org or Hilary Sorrenti at email@example.com.
