The NRCHF created the Reined Cow Horse Crisis Fund to help the NRCHA

The National Reined Cow Horse Foundation (NRCHF) has created the Reined Cow Horse Crisis Fund to help National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) members in difficult times. Cheryl Magoteaux, of Pro Management, Inc., the NRCHA’s management team, stated that the creation of the Crisis Fund came about, in large part, because of the efforts of NRCHA Board of Directors members, and former NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Non Pro Champion Kathy Gould.
“We had the idea, but no one really took hold of this project before Kathy. With her enthusiasm and energy directed toward this cause, it began to take shape earlier this year,” Magoteaux says. Approval by the NRCHF Board followed.

“It had become apparent that this organization needed some way to allow members to help those in need–from a natural disaster striking a home or ranch, a personal tragedy or a health crisis. We now need all the help we can get in order to get this funded,” Gould says. “Because this is done through the NRCHF, all donations are tax deductible and members benefit from foundation donations. Additional rewards are available, depending on accumulated lifetime donation amount.”

“So many people, in recent years, had contacted the NRCHA and wanted a way to support and help when NRCHA members needed it. But there was no organized route for that. Now there is, thanks to Kathy, and we’re hoping people will be eager to fund this program,” Magoteaux adds.

Funds distribution from the Reined Cow Horse Foundation Crisis Fund will be based on proven financial need arising from sudden hardship or disaster or from serious physical illness.
