Donate to the Herd 

Piggy Bank

Help make a difference by joining our Care Partners and provide hay and feed for our residents!


While several of our herd members have found generous sponsors to help care for them year round, we still have many residents that are not sponsored.

This year, we encourage you to join our Care Partners team! We have several ways to become a part of our care teams!

We are one of the ONLY nonprofit equine sanctuaries in Maryland- could you help us?


Big Purple Barn Pony Pal: contribute $25 per month

Big Purple Barn Barn Buddy: contribute $50 per month

Big Purple Barn Farm Friend: contribute $100 per month

Big Purple Barn Guardian Angel: contribute $150+ per month
