— Benjamin Moore & Ring’s End Donation —
enduring and colorful philanthropy

Benjamin Moore & Rings End made a very generous contribution to The Equus Effect in July, 2021.

We received 25 gallons of Arborcoat Barn Red Stain for the exterior and 10 gallons of Clear Stain for the interior posts, beams and walls on our new Covered Arena — valued at $2,500.00. 

If it were not for donors like these, we would never be able to continue our mission to give veterans, military families, first responders, frontline health workers and others in high-stress environments a much needed “leg up” to meet life’s challenges and move forward. 

This particular contribution is exactly what we needed to complete the indoor space where the VA and Yale will be conducting a 16-week research project to measure the impact of our curriculum on a broad sample of veterans in CT.
