US Sailing Foundation
The United States Sailing Foundation (USSF) exists to promote U.S. excellence in international competition. Through the generosity of individual and organizational donors, USSF principally supports U.S. participation in the world championships of various international one-design classes, which serve to expand the base of our sport. In addition, support for projects developed by the Inshore, Offshore and Training Committees, and the Community Sailing Council, are made as resources permit.

Giving a Gift to the US SAILING Foundation
Gifts to USSF can help give athletes the experience they need to fulfill their potential -- perhaps even to become the Olympic athletes of the future. They help give US Sailing team members the coaching and support they need to capture medals for the United States. And they improve the stability and efficiency of Offshore sailboats.
Gifts may be made in the form of:
- an outright donation
- a pledge paid over a period of years
- a bequest, or a planned gift that provides you or a loved one with current income.
- Assets may take the form of cash, appreciated securities, life insurance or property.
In making a gift, you become part of a tradition of giving that began in 1958 with the formation of the US Sailing Foundation and part of the legacy of the US SAILING Association.
