The IEA Benevolent Fund was established ten years ago to provide financial aid to riders who need funding assistance in order to take lessons and compete in the IEA. The Fund also helps coaches who are dealing with unfortunate circumstances such as health issues, injuries, barn fires, wildfires and other unexpected tragedies that translate into a loss of business income. Even in a normal year, the IEA cannot fulfill all requests for assistance. As you can imagine, we have a larger gap this year with the added complications of the pandemic.
In honor of our 20th Anniversary this season, we hope to raise $20,000 by January 2022 to usher in the next generation of dreamers into the IEA. So many young riders will benefit from this assistance who otherwise would not be able to participate in the sport we all love.
We ask YOU – our current members, alumni, family members, friends and equestrian community to help us reach our goal.
Your contribution of $5, $15, $25, $50, $100, $500 or more will go a long way in assisting our rider and coach members in need.
Contributing to the IEA Benevolent Fund is easy to do! Just click on the green button above, OR if you prefer to send a check, mail it to our national office at: Interscholastic Equestrian Association, PO Box 809, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022.
