About Bequests Gifts of Retirement Assets Beneficiary Designations

In our 50th anniversary year, we are proud that the High Hopes planned giving society has been renamed the Sis and Lytt Gould Society, a rededication to ensure the vital work they envisioned 50 years ago continues. This planned giving eNewsletter is a service we provide to our High Hopes friends. It contains helpful information on topics impacting your quality of life, finances, and legacy. Don't hesitate to contact us if you would like us to assist you in any way. We understand that someone's legacy is deeply personal. 

Sis Gould, along with her husband, Lytt Gould, founded the Lower Connecticut Valley Educational Riding Association (now known as High Hopes Therapeutic Riding) in 1974. High Hopes is Sis and Lytt Gould’s legacy. Their vision enabled this place, the very special horses, and dedicated people to come together for fifty years to help their friends and neighbors. 

The people here now benefit from Sis and Lytt’s legacy. Participants gain skills, disability improvements, friendships, and a safe place to work on their challenges. Volunteers gain the satisfaction of giving to others, friendship, and being valued; staff get validation of their skills, friendship, and being a part of an organization that is making a difference. And let’s not forget the horses. All of us are brought together by our very special horses. 

This impact is displayed during our Horse Show Days, a beloved tradition for participants, their families, and friends. The privilege of serving the community, watching lives change, children grow, volunteers smile, and horses trotting around the arena has been profound. That is the High Hopes legacy. 

Warmly,

Claire
