Caring for Children

Operating as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Kentucky Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) is dedicated to helping children improve their quality of life. Through our various events and activities, the chapter strives to raise critical funds and provide grants to non-profit children's organizations in the local area.

For four years, the chapter partnered with Feed the Children to distribute over 680,000 pounds of food and supplies to almost 14,000 families in need. Over the past four years, the chapter has raised and awarded almost $308,000 in grant funding to several organizations serving children in need in Kentucky, Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana. Since its inception in 2011, the Kentucky Chapter of SCC and Kentucky Speedway have distributed more than $625,000 in funding and assistance in its service area.
