ABOUT THE CHARITIES - JCSNF and PDJF
The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF)
The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity that provides financial assistance to approximately 60 former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries. Since its founding in 2006, the fund has disbursed over $12 million dollars to permanently disabled jockeys, most of whom have sustained paralysis or brain injuries.
Many of the jockeys we serve were injured while in their 20s and 30s and face decades of living with a disability. They have lost their income and the opportunity to build a financial cushion sufficient to support them and their families. For more information, visit www.pdjf.org.
The Jockeys Club Safety Net Foundation (JCSNF)
The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation is a charitable trust that provides, on a confidential basis, financial relief to needy members of the Thoroughbred industry and their families. Recipients of the Safety Net Foundation’s support represent virtually every facet of the Thoroughbred industry, from jockeys, trainers, exercise riders, and grooms to office personnel and other employees of racetracks, racing organizations, and breeding farms. Assistance can come in any number of forms, including financial aid for medication, surgical and hospital costs, therapeutic equipment, and basic living expenses such as rent and food costs. Since 1985, The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation has provided more than $16 million in assistance. For more information, visit www.tjcfoundation.org.
