Boulder, Colo. (December 4, 2014)—Earlier this year USA Ultimate announced the creation of the USA Ultimate Foundation, the philanthropic arm of USA Ultimate that raises funds in support of various programs designed to grow the sport of ultimate in the United States. 

USA Ultimate is proud to announce that the IRS filing of a separate 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, the USA Ultimate Foundation, is now complete and donations are now being accepted.

Gifts to the Foundation will support youth development initiatives (with a special emphasis on disadvantaged children), local affiliate and grassroots programs, gender equity through girls’ and women’s initiatives, U.S. National Team programs and Spirit of the Game.

"We have tens of thousands of alumni and friends of USA Ultimate who sincerely appreciate the impact ultimate has had on their lives," said USA Ultimate Board of Directors President Mike Payne last February after the board unanimously approved the creation of the Foundation. "For the first time, we will be formally and actively soliciting help and support from those that have benefitted from and enjoyed their ultimate experiences. This will help us reach thousands more children and communities with the support necessary to grow our wonderful sport." 

The USA Ultimate Foundation will operate solely through private donations from individuals, corporations and other foundations.  To donate today, CLICK HERE
