As an Olympic sports organization we are dedicated to helping climbers become world-class competitors. By empowering national teams, clubs, coaches, parents, officials, volunteers and fans, we are committed to the progression of our sport, our athletes’ success, and the value of the team.
Our committed group of donors believe in better supporting our athletes so that they can reach their fullest potential. Unlike their international competitors, our athletes receive no government funding. Our athletes are funded by our members, partners, the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee and donors like you.
Your support will ensure our athletes have access to world-class coaching, training, technology and direct athlete support they need to strive for medals on the biggest stage and inspire our nation.
Impacts of Funding the Dream: The reasons for making a gift are personal and varied. While larger gifts are instrumental in achieving our transformational goals, gifts of all sizes are just as essential to our well-being and growth. Even the smallest gift helps us to support our athletes’ dreams. Below are a few examples of how philanthropic support directly impact our athletes.

USA Climbing relies on the generosity of the climbing community and the American public to help our athletes remain competitive with the rest of the world. Signiﬁcant ﬁnancial resources are required each year to prepare our elite climbers for World Cups, World Championships, and Olympic Games.

As a new Olympic sport, Climbing can inspire its participants and the public through excellence at the elite level, through efforts such as:
Climbing satisﬁes a basic human instinct to strive as an individual and as part of a community. The practice of climbing builds problem solving skills, ﬂexibility, strength, balance, coordination, power, endurance, and conﬁdence for participants at all levels and has the power to transform one’s outlook about what is possible. With the assistance of donors, USA Climbing seeks to bring this transformative power to as many participants as possible through efforts such as:
