The Three Pillars
As the charitable arm of USA Triathlon, the USA Triathlon Foundation supports grants and programs that advance three pillars: encourage youth participation, inspire pathways to access and inclusion, and ignite Olympic and Paralympic dreams.
- USA Triathlon
Encourage Youth Participation
Every child should have the opportunity to be active and experience the joys of swim-bike-run. Funding toward this pillar helps develop and cultivate youth-centric coaches, clubs and events around the United States to enable kids to practice and train in camps, and participate and race with each other.
Inspire Pathways to Access and Inclusion
Everyone should have the support and ability to participate, grow and excel in triathlon and multisport. Funding toward this pillar delivers resources for Together, We Thrive – USA Triathlon’s diversity, equity, inclusion and access initiative.

Every aspiring elite athlete and elite paratriathlete should have the opportunity to realize their potential and represent the United States on the world stage. Funding toward this pillar enables the United States to achieve unprecedented global triumphs by building sustained success at the sport’s highest level and helping athletes reach their performance goals.
