Foxfield F.A.R.M. (For A Recovery Mission) Foundation was initiated as a 501(C)(3) Charity in April 2016 as an equine-ground-work therapy program for Veterans with PTSD. It recently received a $10,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation created by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman. The foundation turns all net profits and royalties from the sale of Newman’s Own products into charitable donations. To date, Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation have given over $485 million to thousands of charities around the world. This 2017 grant is based on the purpose, value and contribution Foxfield F.A.R.M. provides to U.S. veterans serving and protecting America and its allies throughout the world.
This support reinforces Foxfield F.A.R.M.’s integrity and credibility as a non-profit along with its partnerships with St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center; Mt. Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital and The Frank Netter School of Medicine, Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at Quinnipiac University that was the first to bestow a financial grant.
Other leading benefactors include Kubota Corporation, The Robert and Margaret Patricelli Family Foundation, Wells Fargo Philanthropy Fund, Cabela’s Corporation and Dream Buildings, LLC.
Foxfield F.A.R.M. supports and hopes that new legislation will be enacted to expand public awareness and foster guidelines to aid doctors and clinicians to provide a better quality of life for veterans and their families.
In addition to this cause, a program to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home horses at risk is integrated into the activity to help create a healing synergy between man and equine.
