The WRCA is dedicated to preserving the heritage and lifestyle of the Working Ranch Cowboy.
The WRCA uses Ranch Rodeo to bring attention to our cause and to generate money for our Foundation. We sanction the finest Ranch Rodeos across North America to bring the top Ranch Teams to the World Championship Ranch Rodeo held in Amarillo Texas the second weekend in November. Help in Times of Crisis – We provide funds for Working Ranch Cowboys and their families in times of need. Our support is confidential and requests generally come from neighbors, family and friends. The Working Ranch Cowboys Foundation has been helping people for 14 years. Scholarships – The WRCF provides school funding support for Working Ranch Cowboys and their children. We currently have 32 Students in our program. The Foundation grows every year as does the number of Students we can support.

Working Ranch Cowboys Presents $50,000 to Clarendon College Ranch Program
When a representative of the Working Ranch Cowboys Foundation called Laban Tubbs, director of the Ranch & Feedlot Operations Program at Clarendon College in Clarendon, Texas, and told him that the Foundation wanted to give the program some financial help, Tubbs was excited. He immediately began to think about things the program needed, such as a few supplies, a jacket sponsor for all the students and maybe some scholarship help. That’s when the Foundation representative told him that all that was fine, but they were talking about a significant grant, maybe $50,000. Read more!
Ever get discouraged, hearing about the so-called “slacker generation?” Wonder what’ll happen when those kids start taking over? Well, if it’s kids like these WRCF scholarship recipients, there’ll be some great things happening. The foundation is pleased to help these students achieve a successful transition from the ranch to the college classroom. And we know we’ll reap the benefits in the future – when these teachers, engineers and businessmen and women begin doing their own part to protect our western heritage.
