The Fund for Horses was originally formed in Texas in 2003 as a 501(c)(4) non profit organization by founding President Vivian Grant Farrell.
The Mission of The Fund for Horses is to promote the health, safety and welfare of equines, domestic and in the wild. As a 501(c)(4) The Fund for Horse accomplishes its mission by lobbying for stronger horse protection laws and the enforcement of existing laws.
The following year, Farrell formed another corporate entity, Fund for Horses Charities, as a 501(c)(3) non profit dedicated to fundraising for horse rescue and issue specific welfare programs.
As The Fund for Horses expanded and began to work outside the US, the organization amended its name to the Int’l Fund for Horses.
From its early days The Fund for Horses sent out email blasts to followers every Tuesday. They began to be referred to as Tuesday’s Horse, and the name caught on. With the advent of the blog, the Int’l Fund for Horses formally adopted that name.
The activities of the Int’l Fund for Horses and Fund for Horse Charities are now being merged and reorganized into a single non profit corporate entity called The Horse Fund.
Tuesday’s Horse continues to perform as it has since its beginning — being the Fund’s source for news and views for horse lovers and advocates.
