The mission of the USA Triathlon Foundation is to support and promote triathlon, and open pathways to triathlon to those whom it might not otherwise be possible. The Foundation focuses on three key areas (youth, paratriathletes, and Olympic hopefuls) to provide the opportunities for every child to participate, every paratriathlete to compete, and every young athlete to chase his or her Olympic dream.
In 2014, The USA Triathlon Foundation was formally approved as a 501(c)(3) organization. The objective was to expand participation in - and access to - the sports of triathlon, particularly for youth and para-athletes, and to provide support to young Olympic hopefuls who may need a little help to get to the next level. Whether the sport of triathlon is ingrained in your lifestyle or you are new to the sport, YOU can make a difference! With your support, the USA Triathlon Foundation can ensure the next generation enjoys similar opportunities and experiences within the fastest-growing sport in the U.S. Olympic Movement.
The USA Triathlon Foundation will accept grant applications from individuals and organizations that support and promote multisport and open pathways to multisport to those for whom it might not otherwise be possible. The grant must be for a program related to at least one of the Foundation’s three (3) focus areas; providing support to youth, paratriathletes, and/or Olympic hopefuls.

GRANT RECIPIENT TESTIMONIALS
“My son had such a good time participating here in his first triathlon. He was smiling at various points along the way and was very proud of himself after he finished. He wants to know when he can try another triathlon challenge!”
"I feel whole again because I can swim, handcycle, and push a chair for triathlon! I was never an athlete!"
"I’ll be honest, Dare2Tri has been one of my favorite parts of my summer. Although [Kids Camp] left me sore, I thoroughly enjoyed it. And it’s another thing that I can cross off my bucket list!"
