A $20,000 donation from the Equine Foundation of Canada (EFC) to support horse health at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) on the University of Saskatchewan campus has been doubled by a matching gift program, bringing the total gift to $40,000.

"The Equine Foundation of Canada’s dedicated efforts to support horse health at the WCVM and at other Canadian veterinary colleges are exceptional," said WCVM Dean Douglas Freeman, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACT. "Year after year, members of the EFC have put the long-term health and welfare of horses first by investing in veterinary education, research and clinical services across the country. We admire their commitment and thank them for supporting our veterinary college."

Established in 1983, the EFC is a charitable organization dedicated to supporting the health and welfare of all breeds of horses across Canada. Its latest donation qualifies for the veterinary college’s matching gift program–an initiative that was created by the Heather Ryan and L. David Dubé Foundation in 2006. The Saskatoon foundation has pledged to match any new or increased donations to the WCVM’s equine research programs between 2006 and 2011
