Giving to the Equine Center

Make a difference in the health of horses and horse owners.

The Leatherdale Equine Center translates research breakthroughs into compassionate and first-rate care for our clients. Besides making and applying new discoveries, we train the equine veterinarians of tomorrow who will bring hope and healing to countless horses and their families.

You can make an impact in others' lives by supporting the best in equine care, veterinary research, education, programs, equipments, and facilities.

Where to give

We take pride in scientific discovery, education, and dissemination of knowledge for the benefit of the health and welfare of horses and their owners. Your gift will support student scholarships, graduate fellowships, and faculty research, among others.

This general fund supports non-capital expenses at the Equine Center such as programmatic support, clinical support, education, and outreach.

This fund provides support for capital facility improvements and equipment purchases for the Equine Center. Updated technology and equipment are critical in our surgical and clinical practice as well as in the education of the next generation of veterinarians.
