Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Information

The 501 (c) (3) non-profit Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredits, inspects and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain and rehome Thoroughbreds using industry-wide funding.

Without the support of sustainable funding from key industry stakeholders, such as our Sales Companies, sellers and buyers, the TAA would not exist. A portion
of aftercare funding is provided by the generosity and mindfulness of participating Sales Companies and their sellers and buyers.

To provide sustainable funding, the TAA requests a financial commitment from each sales company. Sales companies enroll by offering their sellers and buyers the opportunity to contribute .05% (one-.05% (one-twentieth of one percent)  per transaction to the TAA. Typically, the sales company contribution is  based on the gross proceeds of the sale.
