Donor Stories

Each year, the United States Olympic Committee works to support its athletes, coaches and sport performance staff in achieving sustained competitive excellence. Donors help the USOC push athletes to excel on the playing field, support vital off-the-field services, and underwrite the athlete financial aid that makes Team USA's performances possible.

Both our donors and the beneficiaries of their generosity have stories to share. Click the links below to read more about the impact of giving to the USOPF.
