Thoroughbred Charities of America has awarded grants totaling $860,672 to 81 Thoroughbred industry-related non-profits that work to uphold TCA’s mission.
TCA distributes grants to several categories of Thoroughbred industry related nonprofits including rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption organizations as well as education and backstretch programs, therapeutic riding programs, and research organizations. Grant applications for 2011 will be available on www.tca.org in early January 2011.
“We are very pleased to once again offer funding to so many worthy charities,” said Erin Crady, executive director of TCA. “The grant money distributed by TCA would not be possible without the generous support of our many donors and, in particular, our stallion season donors.”
Over the past 20 years, TCA has distributed more than $17 million to more than 200 accredited charities that work to fulfill TCA’s mission. TCA is the charitable arm of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association.
TCA’s primary fundraiser is its annual Stallion Season Auction held each winter in Lexington. Donations to TCA can be made in the form of cash donations or as donations in lieu of flowers, birthday gifts or other occasions. To make a donation visit www.thoroughbredcharities.org for donation options.
