After the unprecedented success of our community coming together to raise $4.6 million in 24 hours during the online giving day last September, the Community Foundation of Louisville is excited by the potential for our compassionate community to raise even more on our 5th giving day. Your support and engagement helps not only the individual organizations and their unique missions, but helps to create a stronger community where people and place thrive. Green Hill hopes to raise over $9,000 during this online giving day!
Mark your calendar for #GiveForGoodLou on September 12, 2019. Let’s make the biggest day of local giving even better in 2019!
Event: 11th Annual Hoedown on the Hill!
Date: September 28th, 2019 6-9pm
We partner with you at our annual event to ensure all children are able to recieve our unique and effective hippotherapy and aquatherapy programming, regardless of their ability to pay. This year, our goal is to raise $125,000 to support life-changing scholarships for therapy at Green Hill.
We are seeking to raise money to support 1,488 hours of therapy at Green Hill. Every $84 donated supports one-hour of therapy. Our cost to provide therapy reaches nearly $160.00 per hour and we are paid back a portion of this through health insurance. Therefore, we must make up that gap at our Hoedown on the HIll to keep providing therapy with HORSE POWER!
In addition to nearly a hundred items donated by our local community businesses, we will have an expansive silent auction including the “Green Hill Boutique” specialized “kid art” (the BEST art as far as we are concerned) of projects made in collaboration with our patients and their very talented occupational and physical therapists.
Grab your hats and boots, partner! It’s time for one of Louisville’s most unique fundraisers at our Hoedown on the Hill! See you September 28th. And seriously, jeans, boots, cowboy hats are encouraged!
Pardon any glitches, we are changing our website! Thank you!
On behalf of the Board of Directors at Green Hill Therapy, thank you for a great 2017! I want to ask for your continued help to make the lives of children with special needs even brighter by giving to our year-end campaign.
This year, we provided 5,600 hours of therapy to children with special needs and helped more than 210 children in our Kentuckiana region. We are challenged to raise $84 for each of these therapy sessions and, with your help, we can get to our $470,000 goal this year.
As an owner of a Green Hill therapy horse, Cody Ko, my involvement here is very personal. Several times a week, I come to Green Hill to see my beloved Cody Ko and licensed therapists provide proven, playful therapy and change lives. Here are a few of our accomplishments this past year:
- Grew our reach to those we serve by 10% over 2016!
- Supported the training of 5 Green Hill Therapy therapists to receive professional curriculum through the American Hippotherapy Association. The result is professionally trained, expert therapists who can better use the movement of the horse to help kids.
- Improved our facilities by partnering with GE Appliances to host a three-day facilities make-over at that included building a respite area for staff and families and overall land and capital improvements. In 2018, we will finish our office and clinic expansion so stay tuned for more updates on how we are improving our campus to better serve children.
At the core of these accomplishments are the children and families we serve, the hard fought milestones we help them achieve and the hope we give families that their children will continue to reach their goals! Your gift will go directly to support these goals through scholarships for therapy. Thank you for your consideration and Happy Holidays!
Green Hill Therapy Board of Directors, Secretary

“Gift Horse” by Dari Jones, Age 13
Dari comes to Green Hill for occupational therapy with Miss Sarah.
While many of the children we treat at Green Hill are in elementary school, children with special needs grow up to become adolescents and adults and their goals and needs change.
Dari has been making great strides with her self-confidence, self-help, and motor skills. She made this collage with her therapist at Green Hill specifically to wish you Happy Holidays. Thanks for supporting children like Dari on their journey at Green Hill, and through all phases of life
