TCA awards more than half a million in grants


Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) has awarded grants totaling $512,105 to 74 Thoroughbred industry-related non-profits that work to uphold TCA’s mission to provide a better life for Thoroughbreds, during and after their racing careers by supporting retirement, rescue and research and by helping the people who work with them.

TCA distributes grants to several categories of Thoroughbred industry-related nonprofits including rescue, rehabilitation and adoption organizations; backstretch and farm employee programs; therapeutic riding programs; and research organizations. 

“We are very pleased to announce our 2014 grants,” TCA president Dan Rosenberg said. “These grants are only possible due to the generosity of our donors; without their support these grants would not be possible. We are committed to being a good steward of any and all donations made to TCA and, accordingly, employ an extensive application and review process. Our 2014 grantees are working hard to uphold our mission and we are proud to support them.”

TCA has granted over $20 million to more than 200 Thoroughbred-related charities since its inception in 1990. Grant applications for the 2015 cycle will be available on www.tca.org in early January.
