BondFire is a 501c3, non-profit charitable corporation that is governed by a volunteer board of directors. All veterans, first responders, and their families participate free of charge.
In order to meet our operating budget, our fundraising events, grants, donations, and sponsorship have to account for 100% of our income. You will find some giving opportunities listed below.

Ways to Donate
Bond Fire Ranch T-shirt
With a donation of $50 or more, you will help the Ranch kickstart our donation and fundraising goals for 2022/2023. In return, we want to thank you with your very own BondFire T-Shirt so you can show your support in your community for our military, first responders and their families.
Fire Ring Pavers
BondFire Ranch will be built through the help and support of our local community and donors like you. Help provide a place for our active duty, veteran, first responders and families to disconnect from their electronics and reconnect as a family with a “BondFire Brick”. You can purchase a brick paver to be laid in the BondFire Ranch Fire Ring. Pavers start at a $90 donation and include a dedication of your choosing. You can commemorate the loss of a loved one, beloved horse or pet, or simply add a name to show support for our heroes and horses at BondFire Ranch.
This is a great way to help us grow “brick-by-brick.”

Giving from IRA Accounts
If you are age 72 or older, you can give your required minimum distribution (or any amount up to $100,000) from your IRA as a tax-free rollover gift. At your request, your IRA will send a charitable gift directly to BondFire, and you do not have to report the withdrawal as taxable income. This only applies to IRA accounts; for those who have retirement funds in a 401(k), 403(b), SEP-IRA, or SIMPLE IRA, you can rollover dollars from those accounts to a standard IRA and then make the charitable gift to BondFire to receive the same tax-benefit.
Include BondFire Ranch in Your Will or Trust
A gift to BondFire through your estate and financial planning is a wonderful way to help ensure BondFire Ranch’s programs can continue to make an impact in our community well into the future! Bequests are an easy way to include BondFire in your estate plan and they are not subject to estate tax. Bequests can be designated for general support or for a specific purpose. Simply name BondFire as a beneficiary as you prepare your will or living trust. If you already have a will or living trust, you may add BondFire as a beneficiary through an amendment. There are several benefits of planning a gift to BondFire through your will or trust: your assets remain in your control during your lifetime, you can modify your bequest to address changing circumstances, and under current tax law there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests. We are thankful for your dedication to serving BondFire Ranch’s mission well into the future and would love for you to notify us of your decision so we can ensure your wishes are honored!
Gifts of Stock and Bonds
Gifts of stock and bonds can be very advantageous ways of giving. If you have owned stock that has increased in value for more than one year, you can donate it to BondFire and receive a tax-deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock at the time of the transfer and never pay capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the stock.
Employee Matching Programs
If you already contribute to Bondfire Ranch, or plan to do so, please check to see if your employer will match your contribution! Many employers will and we appreciate your support!
ALL DONATIONS AND SPONSORSHIPS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE UNDER 501c3
