What We Do

California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), a charitable 501(c)(3) organization was created to raise money for retired California racehorses.

You Can Help

Our mission is to assist Thoroughbred retirement facilities that care for and retrain horses whose careers have ended after competing in California Thoroughbred races. Make a Contribution to help ensure our retired racing stars have productive second carrers.


CARMA's grant process includes sending Requests for Proposals to interested facilities, arranging and participating in site visits for those that have properties and/or have horses at foster facilities, conducting interviews and/or office visits for those that do not have farms, reviewing the grant proposals submitted by each applicant, and conducting a final board meeting to allocate funds at the end of the year. For a current schedule and to request an application please visit our Grant Process page.
