Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) announced today that grants totaling over $821,000 were awarded this year. 75 organizations were approved for a grant including 45 aftercare organizations, 20 backstretch and farm worker programs, six equine-assisted therapy organizations, three Thoroughbred incentive programs, and one research organization. Grant recipients can be found on www.tca.org. Over the last 33 years, TCA has awarded more than $26 million in grants.
TCA’s 2023 grants to aftercare organizations were bolstered by support from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute’s Race to Give online fundraising campaign. Last year’s Race to Give raised over $35,000 for approved organizations.
“Thanks to our generous donors, we are thrilled to be able to award grants to 75 organizations working tirelessly on behalf of Thoroughbreds and backstretch and farm workers,” said Erin Halliwell executive director of TCA. “We are so proud of the impact our grantees make and we are pleased to support their work.”
