2014 TCA Grantee

We are honored to be a 2014 Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) Grantee! A huge heartfelt thank you to Darley for their designation to RTCA during the 2014 Stallion Season Auction.

This grant will enable us to provide more support to our Chaplains in their 24/7 ministry at the race tracks, training centers and horse farms. This includes religious support, counseling, food and clothing, recreation services, health services and educational workshops and more! To learn more about our Chaplains and their local efforts follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or join our e-newsletter mailing list!

This year TCA awarded a total of $512,105 to 74 Thoroughbred industry-related non-profits! The organization 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.
