2018 CARMA Grant Cycle

CARMA 2018 Grant Cycle for Funding Thoroughbred Aftercare Charities Opens

Are you a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to rehoming horses? Do some of them happen to be off-track-Thoroughbreds who raced in California? Then consider applying for CARMA's 2018 Grant Cycle which opened on June 25 and will close on September 7.

Since 2008, CARMA has granted over $3.6 million to organizations that retire, retrain and re-home Thoroughbreds that have raced at partnering tracks at Santa Anita Park, Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Los Alamitos Thoroughbred Racing, Golden Gate Fields or California Racing Fairs. The financial resource CARMA  provides helps Thoroughbred Aftercare Charities support the retired racehorses with quality feed, care, training, and a safe place to go after they cross the finish line for the last time. To date, more than 3,000 horses have been helped through our grant process – and we want to increase that number this year.
