TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS

 

Team Velvet, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) children’s charity, EIN# 26-2167394, founded and directed by Dr. Susan Edwards, a NJ-based psychologist, License #2654.  Team Velvet provides equine facilitated mental health services for children in the 5 to 12 year old range. These therapy services are funded through fully tax-deductible donations, in-kind contributions, foundation grants, health insurance when available, and other minor income streams. Dr. Edwards has an all-volunteer staff.

We are in dire need of benefactors and outright cash donations to keep our operations viable.  To donate money, simply click/select the PayPal "Donate" or the "Go Fund Me" campaign button to use your credit card or your existing PayPal account. Or, you can always send a check directly to Team Velvet at the address shown below.  Remember, whatever you give is fully tax-deductible!

Fully tax-deductible donations may be in the form of money, goods (e.g. horse feed and bedding hay from the local feed store), and services (e.g. veterinarian, volunteer at the farm and events).  To discuss your interest in helping our cause, please contact Dr. Susan Edwards directly or use the automated email form on the Contact Us webpage.

Video production costs - prep/filming/editing/refilming/voiceover and post-production process/professional review at $20 an hour for a cost of about $2,000 a video. We would like to complete a series of 10-15 videos for helping children narrated by our helping horse herd.

 

Videos are written by psychologist/director Dr. Susan Edwards free of charge; costs are for production.

Our current wish list includes:

  • A financial benefactor who can share in our vision as well as a love of children and animals. Such a collaboration would result in many wonderful contributions, one of which would be a written model of multi-modal horse therapy which could be replicated anywhere.

  • A permanent farm home (in Central NJ or Eastern PA) in which to develop a regional treatment center for child trauma and help us make a difference in the lives of more good children affected by bad circumstances. 

  • Longer term funding for current and future horse barn rent, utilities and maintenance.​

  • Cash donations for the feeding and caring of our dear and wonderful horses, including but not limited to:

    • ​​Horse Feed

    • Hay

    • De-Worming Paste
