Goals and Criteria
The USATF Foundation seeks to support and expand high quality youth programs and clubs that promote character building, education, and active, healthy behaviors, including running and/or field event participation. It favors the use of grant money to expand the reach of the program to more children, and to enhance the experience for all participants. It also favors programs that have a history of solid financial management and community support. Creative program initiatives to attract diverse ethnic and socio-economic participants are encouraged to apply.
PLEASE NOTE: Examples of expenses that the Foundation does NOT intend to fund include staff salaries, general operating expenses and individual scholarships. Additionally, all grant recipients will be asked to promote and embrace the principles of USATF’s WIN WITH INTEGRITY program.
Interested youth clubs and programs are encouraged to apply immediately. Please direct any questions to USATF Foundation Executive Director, Tom Jackovic at the USATF Foundation office at [email protected].
Note that the USATF Foundation also supports youth athletes through the Mark Springer Travel Grant Program, which has a separate application process.
