WIHS Charity Alliance Program
The Washington International Horse Show is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization with a long history of charitable giving and partnership with both national and local area charities. WIHS has proudly distributed millions of dollars to worthy non-profit organizations.
In addition to traditional support, WIHS has developed an innovative Charity Alliance Program,
whereby donors are able to provide WIHS corporate benefits to their designated charities including
tickets and hospitality as well as creative opportunities to raise awareness and donations.
Through generous support from private donors WIHS has been able to expand its Charity Alliance Program, and this year will provide corporate on-site amenities to our Charity Alliance Partners, Humane Rescue Alliance, Teach for America, Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program, and DC Bike Ride.
For more information on the WIHS Charity Alliance Program please contact Mary Helen Shaughnessy, Sponsorship & Hospitality Director, 202-525-3679 or email@example.com.

TAPS: Caring for the Families of the Fallen
Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, TAPS, is the national organization providing compassionate care for the families of America's fallen military heroes and has offered support to more than 30,000 surviving family members of our fallen military since 1994. TAPS provides peer-based emotional support, grief and trauma resources, seminars for adults, Good Grief camps for children, case work assistance, and 24/7 crisis intervention care for all who have been affected by a death in the Armed Forces. Services are provided free of charge.
The $50,000 International Jumper Speed Final hosts the “Jump for TAPS” Challenge to raise funds for The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. Each time the vertical flag jump is cleared, a monetary donation is made to TAPS. In 2015, $34,000 was raised TAPS.
