The Jockeys Benefit Scheme Trust is a public charitable trust founded by RACING NSW in February 2011 for the purpose of providing funds and other benefits for the relief of the financial difficulties and needs of New South Wales and ACT jockeys (including apprentice jockeys) and their families, especially where such needs arise through the serious injury, illness or death of a jockey.

The activities of the Jockeys Benefit Scheme Trust are conducted under the name NSW JOCKEYS TRUST.

The Trust has been endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as an income tax exempt charity and a deductible gift recipient.

Collaboration with the National Jockeys Trust

The NSW JOCKEYS TRUST also supports the fundraising initiatives of the National Jockeys Trust in New South Wales.

The NSW JOCKEYS TRUST is intended to replicate the functions of the National Jockeys Trust at a State (NSW and ACT) level.
