Donate to the 1901 Club
The 1901 Club annual mailout fundraiser is the fuel that permits our Association to survive. Those donors who contribute $100 annually will have their names entered (once for each $20 donated) into a drawing at our annual reunion – with 5 winners winning either a saber, a set or spurs, or a Cavalry hat. All contributions to the 1901 Club will go into the Operating Fund. Recent donors are listed below.
Donate to our Operating Fund
The Blackhorse Association Operating Fund is essential to administering the scholarship program, publishing and mailing the Blackhorse Newsletter twice annually, maintaining our monthly Blackhorse E-News email program, operating and maintaining our web presence at blackhorse.org, and satisfying the several statutory filing requirements of a 501(c) 3 non-profit, charitable organization. The 1901 Club annual mail out fundraiser is the fuel that permits our association to survive. (See more information about the 1901 Club lower on this page)

The Blackhorse Association has established the Allons Club category of charitable giving in order to encourage the growth of the Blackhorse Scholarship Fund.
Benefactors can be members or non-members who commit to donating $1000 a year towards the Scholarship Fund. The Association is looking for 100 or more benefactors to commit to this amount, which would ensure that we could continue to help fund education for our sons and daughters for many years to come. Recent donors are listed below.
If you are interested in supporting the Scholarship Fund at this level, please contact us, or click on the red Scholarship button above.
