Congratulations to our 2016 Foal Award winners, 14 year old Laura Bagley from Penn Yan, NY, 12 year old Cwen Cole from Roxbury, CT and a surprise extra award, Hanna Ceppaluni! The Chincoteague Legacy Group not only contributed to the purchase of Cwen's foal, they offered to purchase a foal for a third applicant, so we were happy to add Hanna to our Feather Fund family. Welcome aboard girls You each chose a spectacular foal to take home from Pony Penning in July.
WHO ARE WE?
The Feather Fund is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit fund operating under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of Carroll County. The Feather Fund continues work begun by Carollynn Suplee, assisting deserving children with the purchase of Chincoteague Ponies. We believe raising a foal teaches children life lessons, including
responsibility, good care, love, and ethics, as well as the concept of giving back to others through the care and training of his or her animal. Additionally, the Fund may occasionally provide attendant costs or financial support to related philanthropic causes.
The Feather Fund relies on donor contributions and fundraisers to make pony dreams come true.
