Save Lives Build Champs

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

The USA Swimming Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of USA Swimming. Established in 2004, the Foundation works to strengthen the sport by saving lives and building champions - in the pool and in life. Whether we're equipping our children with the life-saving skill of learn-to-swim through our Make a Splash initiative, or providing financial support to our heroes on the U.S. National Team, the USA Swimming Foundation aims to provide the wonderful experience of swimming to kids at all levels across the country.



The USA Swimming Foundation's Make a Splash initiative is a national child-focused water safety campaign, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim.  Through Make a Splash, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety advocates across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim.  The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of dollars to provide grants to qualified Local Partner learn-tos-wim programs, to spread national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning.

While the Foundation currently provides funding to the U.S. National Swim Team athletes and coaches, its vision and ultimate goal is to grow a development endowment to strengthen the future of USA Swimming's programs and services. This support will create a legacy for future generations of swimmers and will help grow a sport we all care so much about.

Supporting the sport from grassroots to gold medals is something we cannot do alone. By supporting the USA Swimming Foundation, you are supporting the sport and the life-long lessons it provides in leadership, discipline and time management.  Visit us online to learn more about how we're building champions - in the pool and in life.
