Every gift to U.S. Figure Skating has a direct impact on the success of skaters and figure skating programs throughout the country. Thank you for choosing to give your charitable support to U.S. Figure Skating.
Gifts can be directed to a number of different areas.
The Centennial Fund aims to grow the sport by celebrating its history. Gifts to the fund directly support the digitization of the museum and its artifacts along with the creation of traveling exhibits. These new mediums will allow U.S. Figure Skating to share our history with individuals and communities across the country; developing knowledge of the sport, encouraging growth and participation and inspiring the skaters that will lead us through the next 100 years.
Mabel Fairbanks Skatingly Yours Fund
The Mabel Fairbanks Skatingly Yours Fund financially assists and supports the training and development of promising Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) figure skaters with the goal of helping them realize and achieve their maximum athletic potential.
Since its inception in 1961, the Memorial Fund has provided more than $20 million in financial support to thousands of skaters. It not only provides monetary assistance for training expenses but tuition assistance for athletes attending institutions of higher education.
Planned and estate gifts are crucial to U.S. Figure Skating and helps to shape the future of the sport. You can direct your gift to several different areas and a U.S. Figure Skating representative is happy to answer any questions. Please see the information below to reach out.
Friends of Figure Skating
The Friends of Figure Skating are the Team behind Team USA. This benefit-based, annual donation program, directly supports Team USA athletes through high performance training, medical support and development both on and off the ice.
Synchronized Skating Athlete Support Fund
The Synchronized Skating Athlete Support Fund was established by an anonymous family of donors with the goal of helping U.S. synchronized skaters to reach their goals on the World stage. This historic fund will help take synchronized skating to the next level by supporting the training costs for two junior and senior World eligible teams. In addition, the DREAM scholarship has been created to support developmental skaters each season through a video essay contest.
U.S. Figure Skating now allows gifts of cryptocurrency for any of its major funds. Gifts of cryptocurrency are eligible for tax relief and can help U.S. Figure Skating to create programming for athletes.
Area of Greatest Need
A donation to the Area of Greatest Need allows U.S. Figure Skating to respond to unforeseen opportunities and the flexibility to provide financial assistance to skaters and programs at a moment's notice. An unrestricted gift is one of the most valuable gifts that you can give U.S. Figure Skating.
U.S. Figure Skating is happy to work with any donor who may want to give a monthly, semi-annually or bi-annual gift. U.S. Figure Skating also encourages every donor to check with your employer in case they will match your gift.
