United States Synchronized Swimming Foundation Grants
Only non-profit organizations fostering the growth and promotion of synchronized swimming are eligible.
A Form W-9 is required with the grant application.
Equipment costs will not be considered in any grant request.
Requests must be made using the USSSF’s online Grant Application.
Grants are frequently awarded for programs to help teams grow, such as “Intro To Synchro” events and marketing to attract new athletes.
Athlete clinics and athlete development programs are supported with grants every year – at club, association, region, zone and national levels.
A large grant category each year is education and certification programs for coaches and officials.
Grants are provided to collegiate and masters teams too. Matching grants may be offered to collegiate programs to multiply fundraising efforts.
