The ATAA is ready to take WEG donations (thank you to everyone that has already pledged and been so patient). We were humbled by the outpouring of support for an Akhal-Teke Breed Booth at the 2018 World Equestrian Games, and are ready to move forward.
The ATAA is partnering with the Equus Survival Trust, who have generously offered to co-support our WEG efforts and will make donations tax deductible to promote our breed to the competition world.
To donate for the Akhal-Teke Breed Booth at the 2018 World Equestrian Games, you have two options:
Donate without getting a tax deduction – this is directly to the ATAA, Click HERE. If you do this, please realize these funds are NOT tax deductible. But they would be appreciated and used anyway!
Donate through the Equus Survival Trust. EST is a 501c3 and as such, donations are tax deductible within the scope of the IRS regulations. Donations by check or via the EST website PayPal "Surprise Us" option are acceptable for this ATAA fundraiser. All donors will receive a written receipt for tax purposes. Donations to EST for ATAA must be earmarked STRICTLY as follows: "Donation to ATAA". DONATION BUTTON IS HERE. Make sure you note that the funds are a donation to the ATAA please.
We have made the down payment on the Akhal-Teke WEG Breed Booth and will keep everyone updated as we go along. We will be contacting people that have pledged shortly, but you can certainly donate more!
Thank you from the ATAA and EST. We’ll see you in September at WEG!
