The Bruce Hanson American Saddlebred Welfare Grant Application- Apply Today
Published Date: Sep 08, 2019
The Bruce Hanson American Saddlebred Welfare Grant is named in honor of the late Bruce Hanson. Bruce had a great concern for the welfare of the American Saddlebred, and through Bruce’s efforts, the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s Equine Welfare Committee was established. Bruce served as the chairman of the Committee and made the first contribution in support of this grant application.
The purpose of a Bruce Hanson American Saddlebred Welfare Grant is to promote and support the welfare of American Saddlebreds that might otherwise be in jeopardy. To receive a grant, applicants must demonstrate their activities in support of the welfare of the American Saddlebred and how the grant money will be used in furtherance of these activities. The Committee expects that such grants will supplement, not substitute, fundraising efforts by the applicant.
The Committee’s decision to award a grant will rest primarily on the contents of the application. Grants will be awarded in amounts to be determined by the Committee and on recommendation to ASHA. Individuals and organizations that have previously received support from the ASHA for welfare efforts must wait at least three (3) years before reapplying. Due to the structure of the ASHA, only registered and current 501(c)3 organizations may be considered for the grant. Successful applicants will be required to complete a Progress Report and Final Evaluation Form at six (6) months and upon completion of the activities for which the grant was awarded respectively. 2019 grant application availableHERE. All grant applications must be postmarked on or before September 15, 2019 and may be sent to:
