The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund was founded by Lindsay Maxwell in 2016 as a means to formalize her commitment to charitable giving. The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund supports meaningful organizations and programs that align with Ms. Maxwell’s philanthropic priorities and values: Improving the lives of children with special needs; enabling access to educational opportunities; and providing care, compassion, and protection to animals. As a rider herself, Ms. Maxwell especially appreciates the difference a satisfying meal and relaxed atmosphere can make when competing during the long days at a horse show. The National Horse Show greatly appreciates the support that the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Foundation has provided to them for the past two seasons.
“Our relationship with Lindsay Maxwell and her foundation has been nothing short of incredible for the National Horse Show,” remarked Jennifer Burger, President of the National Horse Show. “We are looking forward to hosting this year’s competitors in this new space and helping to improve their experience of our iconic event.”
