The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team Foundation is the non-profit fundraising arm of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing. Incorporated in 1964 as a 501(c)3, the Foundation raises money to support year-round athlete training, development, competition and educational needs.
The U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing are the only teams on the international circuit that receive no federal funding and operate solely through private donations from individuals, corporations and foundations.
The money raised by the Foundation supports athletes in all disciplines of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing. After bringing home 21 medals from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the Foundation is looking not only to support current athletes, but to plan for the next generation of skiers and snowboarders watching at home and dreaming of the time they will stand on the podium to represent the United States.
Donations to the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team Foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
