USA Artistic Swimming Foundation Grants
Only non-profit organizations fostering the growth and promotion of artistic 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 USAASF’s online Grant Application.
Grants are frequently awarded for programs to help teams grow, such as “Intro To Artistic Swimming” 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.

Deadlines and Timelines for 2019-2020 Grants Extended
The USA Artistic Swimming Foundation Grants Committee realizes that many of you have been, for the most part, unable to start or complete your awarded grant plan. Because of the situation in which we all find ourselves, the Foundation has decided to extend the time for you to complete your grant.
The Grants Committee is waiving the requirement for any interim reporting, and would like to offer you three different options for your grant:
- Complete your grant as planned, and send a final report only (no interim required) by August 14, 2020, to receive your final funding.
- Request a one year extension on the grant that had been awarded and complete your final report by July 31, 2021. The request for an extension should be done by 8/14/20.
- Decide to forego your grant awarded, and return any funds back to the Foundation. Please return funds by 8/14/20.
We hope that this extension will allow you to still complete your grant plans that will help the sport grow.
Thank you for all you do for our sport.
