ATC Foundation Helping Racing & Community Groups

The ATC Foundation has released a seventh round of grants – totalling $205,000 – to assist the racing industry and community groups around the Club’s four racecourses.

The funding to successful applicants – ranging in grants from $5,000 to $35,000 – brings to a total of more than $1.2 million distributed since the ATC Foundation was established in 2018.

Funds were raised via on-course donations and activities such as charity events, the sale of official Carnival pins along with saddlecloth auctions from a number of Group 1 Australian Turf Club races.

ATC Foundation Chair, Angela Belle McSweeney said the Board had also approved several two-year partnerships for funding aligned with key racing industry bodies the National Jockeys Trust, Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy and Equine Pathways Australia.

“The ATC Foundation is inviting applicants across NSW charities and we are always especially pleased to collaborate with the racing industry,” Ms McSweeney said.

“On behalf of the ATC Foundation Board and our Club and Members, I thank everyone who has donated or purchased special merchandise to allow us to continue such important work for so many diverse groups.”
