Throughout the years, Elvis could often be seen riding his horses around the Graceland property and would ride down to the front gate to sign autographs for fans. The winning bidder and a guest will receive the opportunity to tour the Graceland Stables and meet the current Graceland horses. The 90-minute tour will also include an up-close look at saddles used by Elvis and his entourage, personal western wear including chaps, hats and boots all worn by Elvis, and even Elvis’ handwriting on the wall where he wanted the tack and harnesses of each horse.

The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation 

The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation (EPCF), a 501(c)3 organization, was formed by Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. in 1984 to continue Elvis’ own tradition of generosity and community service, and to honor his memory. All of the EPCF’s funds are used for charitable donations — nothing is deducted for staffing or other operating costs. The foundation has assisted numerous charities over the years and has a longstanding relationship with the College of Communications and Fine Arts at the University of Memphis where the Elvis Presley Endowed Scholarship Fund was created. Also, dear to Elvis’ heart, the foundation has supported outstanding Memphis-based charitable organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the National Civil Rights Museum. The foundation receives a portion of its overall income of Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.  A meaningful amount of the EPCF’s funding also comes from donations made by Elvis fan clubs and individual Elvis fans and admirers from around the world.
