Giving Back

The Trail of Painted Ponies is dedicated to giving back and we have had the privilege of raising over $1 million for many worthy non-profit organizations over the past 15 years. From animal protection and the environment to healthcare, education and the arts, we have blazed a Trail of support built on a foundation of solid business practices. Today, The Trail of Painted Ponies continues to raise awareness and funds for some of the finest non-profit organizations in the world. The Celebrity Collection from The Trail of Painted Ponies invites celebrities to create their own Painted Ponies and the proceeds benefit the non-profit organization of the celebrity's choice.

We believe 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.
