helping hands

Storybook Ranch is owned and operated by a 501(c)3 non-profit charity. All events held at the ranch act as fundraiser events for the River Ranch Educational Charities' fund that provides scholarships, discounted services and assistance for many other nonprofits around the North Texas area. We pride ourselves in not only donating directly to community members but also helping our fellow charity groups.

River Ranch Educational Charities has provided generous donations to organizations such as Rocky Top Therapy, Make-A-Wish foundation, American Heart Association, American Diabetes, Samaritan Homeless foundation, St. Jude's Children’s Hospital and Orphan Angels to name a few. With your generous donations and patronage, we can continue to provide a local retreat and facilities to host fundraising events.

In addition to helping our human community, we also help our animal friends as well. Storybook Ranch has taken on many homeless, sick or unwanted animals and incorporated them into the learning program at the ranch. We have nursed many horses and goats back to health. Part of the proceeds from our fundraisers also goes to help our animal community as well.

You can participate in the education of our children by becoming a volunteer. Earn community service hours by helping out at the ranch, or just come out to learn more about animals and ranch living. For high school students, volunteer hours can benefit you as you exit into the world from school. You will be able to put your service hours on your resume as work experience. Volunteer Staff
