Help the TRF reach their goal!!

The club was forwarded this email today and thought it would be great to pass this along!!

Hi, everyone,

You may have heard the great news that TRF friend and supporter Amy Tarrant of Hardacre Farm has issued a $100,000 matching challenge. Any gift made to the TRF between now and December 31, up to a total of $100,000, will be matched by Amy.

Please let your friends, family, and colleagues know of this wonderful opportunity to double their dollars. If you have the opportunity to connect with other TRF donors, please be sure to mention it. Gifts directed to your program will also be doubled, so please feel free to ask people to make gifts directed to your farm.

We have publicized this in recent e-mails, but the full roll out will be with our fall edition of ReNews that should hit mailboxes in the next week. It will include a cover letter asking people to participate. We will follow up with a year-end mailing, as well. Please also don’t forget to remind people that horse sponsorship and TRF merchandise are great holiday gifts.

Thanks for your help and all good wishes for a relaxing, bountiful Thanksgiving.

Best,
Linda
