The USA Track & Field Foundation was established in 2002. Our Foundation provides a means to attract and guide funds to new and innovative track & field programs, with an emphasis on providing opportunities for youth and elite athletes.
The Foundation assists dedicated Olympic hopefuls who can realize their dreams and potential if given the opportunity. The Foundation is committed to promoting the development of Team USA, through its Elite Athlete Grant program. The goal of the USATF Foundation has always been to “raise money and give it to athletes.” Through the years, the Foundation has annually supported almost all levels of competitors from Olympic medal contenders to Youth Clubs and ODP program participants. This pipeline of support ultimately assists in the development of Team USA, the World’s #1 Track & Field Team. No other country in the world has citizens supporting their Olympic team through philanthropy like we have been able to do here in the USA – it’s a tradition that the USATF Foundation will continue to exemplify.
