The Foundation seeks to support the pursuit of world-class performances by American post-collegian track & field athletes who have met minimum performance standards by contributing to compelling individual financial needs with an Elite Athlete Grant.

The Foundation assists dedicated Olympic hopefuls who can realize their dreams and potential if given the opportunity. The Foundation is committed to promoting the development of Team USA, the World’s #1 Track & Field Team through its Elite Athlete Grant program and financial support of other elite-oriented programs.
