Hearts Up Ranch Donation Form
“If everyone who heard about us during the Ride Across America alone donated only $1, Hearts Up Ranch would already be fully funded. EVERY donation matters.”
– Richard McGrath
A charitable contribution of any size is much appreciated, is tax deductible, and will go directly to benefit Hearts Up Ranch. Your gift will be used to better the lives of others. Your donation matters.

Suggest Hearts Up Ranch as a ministry that your church or community group can support. We are currently planning ahead for groups interested in hosting a benefit event that the Hearts Up Ranch founders and Cross Country Riders can attend either in video, Skype, or in person.

ALERT!

Contact media in your area as well as national talk shows and morning shows with the story about the Ride Across America and encourage them to host the McGraths on a show. Please share in your own words your perspective of the ride, how you were part of the journey, how it affected you, etc, as well as the details about the Ride Across America and what Hearts Up Ranch is about. Feel free to copy and paste small portions of this website if you need help with wording. Remember to make the first few sentences exciting to catch the reader’s attention.

With a little community involvement to help saturate the media and public with our message,  this project will be a success and will help people for years to come.

The Big Picture

The Coast to Coast Ride was a large scale fundraiser to promote Hearts Up Ranch. All charitable contributions, sponsorships, and pledges went and will continue to go directly to Hearts Up Ranch. The goal of the ride was to begin raising the funds needed to start the ranch as well as create an endowment. This is to keep costs low for the guests who come for ministry, as well as minimize the time and resources needed for yearly fundraising. Thus  it will allow the staff to be fully devoted to the mission of emotional healing. Essentially, the majority of the fundraising for years to come is being done up front. Please see above for how you can help the continued fundraising efforts to turn the vision into reality.
