| Big Star Ranch, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) Your contributions are tax deductible.
Tuition fee's cover a portion of the care and feeding costs of our hard working horses. It is the generous gifts of people like you that help us continue to serve those individuals who need our
services and may not be able to afford them.
What would we do without faithful volunteers?
Our volunteers are treasures.
We have many opportunities for people to get involved and help in the special work we do.
Every day we clean stalls, scrub water buckets, sweep the isle, and make sure the grounds are
safe for our beloved horses and very special students. We take the stewardship of the property and the herd
very seriously, and do all we can to make sure everyone who comes to Big Star Ranch can be safe.
If this sounds like fun to you, we start morning chores at 9:00am. Our morning volunteers are invaluable
as we depend on them to get the day off to a great start!
Special Projects and Maintenance Days are scheduled throughout the year as our lesson schedule permits.
Construction projects may include fence building, arena projects, installing gates, building a
tack room, painting, spreading gravel, leveling stall mats, water drainage, cleaning and maintenance. Big Star Ranch
does not own a tractor, so your help would be greatly appreciated.
If you are more of a fund raiser, consider joining our fund raising committee. Our heart is to never turn anyone away who needs our services, due to
finances. We always welcome donations of money, but we also are happy to receive items of value that we could sell (or use). We have also
done various fund raising through selling items at Christmas bazaars, tack sale, bottle and can drives, Fred Meyer rewards, United Way gifts....
We would appreciate your ideas and help in this area! We are currently looking for sponsors for new riding helmets and stall mats.

In order to ensure a safe and secure environment for all parties, a background check is required for all volunteers.
The volunteer coordinator will discuss this further with you during the registration process.
For those of you who want to help us, but can't volunteer your time, we welcome your financial support!
