Your contribution can be applied to funds for disaster relief, general operating, participant assistance and others. Donate through Facebook for your donation to have a chance at being matched.

Center Giveaway Results From the 2019 Conference
PATH Intl. announced in October that it had received a generous, anonymous donation for two giveaways at the international conference in Denver - one for a PATH Intl.

Premier Accredited Center in Visalia, CA, was the recipient of $1,000. PATH Intl. Center Member Hooves of Hope Equestrian Center in Lancaster, KY, received $500 and the donor will contribute another $500 toward accreditation fees should they choose to pursue accreditation.

Congratulations to the centers, and a whole-hearted thank you to the donor!
