The Power of Partnership...The Trail of Painted Ponies has had the privilege of partnering with many worthy non-profit organizations over the years...from animal protection and the environment to youth, education and the arts, we have blazed a Trail of support built on a foundation of solid business practices. The Trail of Painted Ponies believes that Philanthropy is an important activity that requires a great deal of time and thought to be effective. We are not simply involved in giving away money, The Trail is investing money for the public good and we are monitoring the return on that "venture philanthropy" investment. Therefore, in order for charitable dollars to make a difference, the non-profit organizations that have partnered with The Trail of Painted Ponies have adopted the best business practices of the for-profit world, from business plans and clearly defined goals to the designation of a point person to handle the project. From there, it is essential to believe that the people that you are investing in are truly agents of change and to monitor the results in dollars and cents. We have the pleasure of partnering with some of the finest non-profit organizations in the world, as we continue our commitment to Philanthropy and Philanthropic Partnerships.

Together we are working to create a better world...

We support the very important work of Humane Society of the United States and we need your help. Real horses desperately need our protection and The Humane Society and The Trail of Painted Ponies would like to urge people to become aware of this important issue and contact legislators immediately. Congress needs to enact legislation that will permanently protect horses from slaughter. Please support the Humane Society of the United States by visiting their website and contacting the appropriate legislators. Together we can help protect America's horses.

Every once in a while, we are touched by something so powerful that it demands our full attention, and this is one of those occasions. Recently, the world lost a long time friend and a champion of Native American arts and culture...[more]
