Thank you for your consideration of a sponsorship for the 2022 Christmas in the Barn, benefitting Gateway Family Services of Illinois and Hooves of Hope. This event raises funds to care for the equines who are a vital part of both non-profit organizations. 

As a sponsor, your partnership, along with other businesses and donors, is critical as we work to impact the lives of countless individuals and families across Central Illinois. Our unique, comprehensive services include working with our equines. Did you know that costs approximately $30,000 to care for all of our equine partners for one year? Your 
sponsorship provides countless opportunities for individuals to connect with our herd and find healing!

In addition to knowing that your gift is changing the lives of individuals all across central Illinois, your sponsorship includes many other benefits. We have included those benefits below. If you have any questions or do not see what you are looking for, please email us at

We look forward to partnering with you!
