About The Cloud Foundation

The Cloud Foundation, is a Colorado 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, that grew out of Ginger Kathrens' knowledge and fear for not only Cloud's herd but other wild horses in the West. "I began to realize that we were losing America's wild horses," Ginger says. "They are rounded up by the thousand, losing in an instant what they value most--freedom and family. I realized that even Cloud and his family were in danger."

Sheryl Crow makes generous donation to Cloud Foundation for wild horses
Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter stands behind preservation of wild horses on public land

DENVER, CO (July 7, 2011) – Legendary singer, songwriter--Sheryl Crow--announced today that she will be donating a portion of the proceeds from her concert at Cheyenne Frontier Days to The Cloud Foundation based in Colorado Springs. The donation from her upcoming concert at Frontier Days in Wyoming aims to promote awareness and increase appreciation for America’s free roaming wild horses.

“As part of my summer-long touring commitment with Kid Rock, I am playing the Cheyenne Frontier Days Festival in Cheyenne, Wyoming,” states Crow on her website. “I am aware of the contrasting and very passionate opinions that people have about this event, and rodeos in general. In recognition of these differences, and out of my love for wild horses, a portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to The Cloud Foundation, an organization dedicated to the preservation of wild horses on public lands.”

“We are very grateful for Sheryl’s continuing support to save the last wild horses still roaming free in the West,” states Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of The Cloud Foundation. “The herds are so small now they run the risk of dying out.”

Sheryl Crow’s donation will go to build the Foundation’s new Save the Mustangs Fund.

In 1900 there were an estimated 2-3 million mustangs roaming free. Though protected by a 1971 Act of Congress it is believed there are fewer than 20,000 currently remaining on their legally designated rangelands.
