The USATF Foundation is dedicated to bringing our Foundation community together with donors financially supporting elite and youth athletes while simultaneously giving the elite an opportunity to give back.  In exchange for their service to communities and the youths therein, the US elite track and field athletes receive a measure of the financial support they need to finance their Olympic aspirations.

New in 2020 the Foundation has migrated to a Virtual Run With US! platform.

With the Coronavirus pandemic limiting in person events we are forging a new path to continue inspiring kids.

  • Deployment of screened, trained, charismatic Track & Field Olympians and aspiring Olympians
  • Connect through schools primarily – elementary, middle & high school – but also YMCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs, Running Clubs, and Foundation ODP clubs
  • Activation potential of more than 300 athletes
  • All programs are 100% free to the schools or programs, but we will sometimes use a school incentive program to drive progress
  • Achievement in measured use of health curriculum and active engagement of the kids

The USATF Foundation provides a means to attract and guide funds to new and innovative track and field programs with an emphasis on providing opportunities for youth athletes, emerging and experienced elite athletes, along with guidance on future career paths. The Foundation depends upon donations from its Board of Directors, major gifts, and from generous fans of track & field.

Elite athletes are supported by the Foundation via monetary grants, career counseling (mentoring and jobs) and participation in Run With US!. Youth athletes are supported via monetary grants to youth clubs.
