Charity and Giving Back

George and Dianne Tidball Legacy Foundation

Thunderbird Show Park is committed to charitable and philanthropic endeavors.

George and Dianne Tidball lived their lives with an emphasis on hard work, life long learning and creating opportunity.  They had an eye to the future and through the Foundation we carry on the traditions George and Dianne started.  Mentorship, encouragement, and empowering people were key tenets in George and Dianne’s success. 

The George and Dianne Tidball Legacy Foundation focuses on programs and initiatives to support people with disabilities, education and nutrition in developing countries, sport accessibility and animal welfare.  In addition, the Foundation supports committed local athletes in sport and education through bursaries and scholarships.  Supporting Para athletes and Riding for the Disabled programs is a rewarding way for the Foundation to be an integral part of grass roots initiatives. Initiatives which affect lives and support the realization of dreams and goals. 

JustWorld International

Thunderbird Show Park is excited to be a charitable partner with JustWorld International.

JustWorld International acts a catalyst for positive change in the developing world by working with local partner organizations to provide basic education, nutrition, health, hygiene and vocational programs for children in impoverished communities in Honduras, Cambodia, Guatemala and Columbia. 

Working with the international equestrian community, JustWorld International’s Rider Ambassadors raise awareness and funds for programs which provide basic needs to children who would otherwise have little opportunity for support. 

Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.  With a focus on long-term goals and initiatives JustWorld International is giving thousands of children a brighter future.
