Carmel-based nonprofit Ben’s Ranch Foundation has received more than $25,000 in grants from multiple foundations in the area over the last month.
The funds will go toward furthering the organization’s mission: to create new options and hope for young people struggling with mental health challenges by connecting them to employment opportunities on farms, ranches, stables, and therapeutic riding facilities.
The most recent organizations funding Ben’s Ranch Foundation include:
- Crosser Family Foundation, a fund of Hamilton County Community Foundation
- Samerian Foundation
- Steele Family Foundation
- Lumina Foundation
Ben’s Ranch Foundation was also selected as one of only two beneficiaries of the Meyer Najem Construction Swing into Giving annual golf event. The event brought in more than $30,000 for Ben’s Ranch Foundation.
“As we work to fulfill the growing needs of teens, we are forever grateful for all of the support we receive and encouraged by the momentum we’re building,” said Ben’s Ranch Foundation Founder Brose McVey. “We are excited for the recent support as we continue to help teens overcome their mental health challenges during this incredibly stressful time for so many young people.”
