General Giving


An endowment is a permanent investment of gifts from which the income earned will be used to support the ministry of Prairie Star Ranch. Only the income or interest earned is available for distribution, so the donor’s original gift is never spent.

As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs, facilities maintenance, scholarship assistance, etc. By planning today, endowment funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the ministry of Prairie Star Ranch, and in time, the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.

Thanks to generous donors, the following Endowments have been established to provide scholarship assistance for groups/individuals attending Prairie Star Ranch and Camp Tekakwitha:

  • For Kids and Christ Scholarship Endowment
  • Antoinette “Toni” Berkel Scholarship Endowment
  • Cosentino Scholarship Endowment
  • Fr. Tom Tank Scholarship Endowment
  • Dcn. Dana and Deborah Nearmyer Endowment

To contribute to an established endowment or to start a new endowment, please contact Gregory Wellnitz, Director of Prairie Star Ranch.

"God will not overlook your work and the Love You Have Demonstrated For Others For His Name."

Hebrews 6:10

Sponsor a Horse

Partner with us to care for horses

When you sponsor a horse you commit to supporting that horse by covering the basic costs of feed and hay, vaccines and worming, farrier and tack. Your donation is tax-deductible and is a wonderful gift-giving opportunity for a child or spouse.

In return, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to care for a very special creature of God, and supporting a program dedicated to helping youth and families connect with Christ.

  • A photograph of your horse
  • Certificate of sponsorship
  • PSR t-shirt
  • Invitations to Sponsor-a-Horse events such as trail rides
  • Updates on PSR’s horsemanship program

Full Sponsorship
