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.

The chapter has partnered with Feed the Children and the Council for State Government to distribute over 685,000 pounds of food and supplies to almost 17,000 families in need. Over the past five years, the chapter has raised and awarded almost $400,000 in grant funding to nearly 50 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 $725,000 in funding and assistance in its service area.

This year's schedule of fundraising events will include:

  • June (Date TBD) - 6th Annual SCC Fundraising Dinner
