Shop for SAFE
Here are a few ways that you can support SAFE by shopping online:
Fred Meyer Community Rewards
If you shop at Fred Meyer or QFC, it’s easy to support SAFE! Fred Meyer donates over $2 million each year to nonprofits and community groups throughout the Pacific Northwest. All you have to do is link your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Save a Forgotten Equine. The more you purchase with your card, the more SAFE horses will be helped.
Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Save a Forgotten Equine at fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. You can search for us using our name or our nonprofit number #WX327.
Every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping SAFE earn a donation! This does not in any way change the benefits you receive by using the card… you still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support SAFE every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to SAFE.
To select SAFE as your charity of choice, just visit https://smile.amazon.com/ch/20–5825355. Once you’ve done this, AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation to the horses at SAFE.

Do you shop online? iGive.com is a shopping portal with over 900 online stores, including Best Buy, eBay, Home Depot, Office Depot, The Gap, Nordstrom, and Lands End, just to name a few. iGive is the easiest, most painless way to raise money for SAFE from the online shopping you already do. The donations come from the merchants you are buying for, not from you. Sign up free with iGive and when you shop through the iGive portal, merchants will donate a percentage of your purchase to SAFE, up to 26%, depending on the merchant.

SAFE is registered with Donate For Charity for vehicle donations. Donate for Charity will sell your donated car through a national network of auction and salvage houses to ensure the maximum donation possible is given to the charity you select.
The IRS allows vehicle donors to receive a tax deduction on their vehicles. Donate for Charity handles all of the tax paperwork, and their national network of auction and salvage houses ensures you receive the highest possible tax deduction, based on market conditions and the condition of your donated vehicle or car.
Donate for Charity can pick up your vehicle at your home, at the auto repair shop or even by the side of the road! Visit their website at https://www.donateforcharity.com/car-donation-program/
Workplace Giving Campaigns
SAFE is enrolled in several workplace giving campaigns that add value to your charitable contributions by matching funds, or even compensating non-profits for volunteer hours worked. Below is a list of some of the programs SAFE is involved with.
Do you work at a company with a workplace giving program not listed here? If so, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll be more than happy to fill out and submit any paperwork needed to enroll SAFE in your company’s giving program.
Our Wish List
A HOME of our own.
Safe Harbor Stables is a property that we lease from its owner, and it’s a wonderful home for us. But at some point in the future we need to own our own facility, a place where we can grow our organization and help more horses.
A Second Pickup Truck that could tow a gooseneck trailer
SAFE owns a nice one-ton Ram pickup but it’s got a short bed so it’s not good for hauling a gooseneck trailer. Someday we’d like to have a large stock trailer that we can use to move groups of horses, especially wild or unhandled ones.

Our Wish List for the Farm:
We use these for manure pickup and stall cleaning. This is the Rubbermaid Big Wheel Cart — it’s great because you can pull it with one hand (unlike a standard wheelbarrow, which requires two hands). UNFORTUNATELY THESE DON’T LAST FOREVER so while we have several, eventually they break down. Our volunteers work very hard, and we want them to have the best tools we can give them. So if you have the desire to help SAFE with a gift, buying us one of these carts is the surest way to win our hearts. Available at farm stores and Home Depot/Lowes. Used farm carts are welcome too!
Other farm equipment we need:
- 50–75 gallon Rubbermaid water troughs
- Brooms, plastic pitch forks and light weight aluminum shovels
- LightHoof – Mud Management
- Pea Gravel for turnouts

Staples gift cards
Do you have tack or other horse related items collecting dust in your home or barn? Donate these items to SAFE and get a tax deduction for their fair market value.
Donations of tack, horse blankets or supplies are very useful to SAFE. If we can’t use your donated item for one of our horses, we can sell these items at our tack consignment store, on eBay or at tack sales to earn money for SAFE. We prefer that donated items be clean and in usable condition. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have items you’d like to donate.
