About the USA Triathlon Foundation

    Archi Trujillo

    The USA Triathlon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and the charitable arm of USA Triathlon. Our mission is to transform lives through sport by providing opportunities to swim, bike and run.

    We generate a greater impact on the multisport community through charitable giveback and grants that advance the Foundation’s three pillars:

    • Encourage youth participation
    • Inspire pathways to access and inclusion
    • Ignite Olympic and Paralympic dreams

    Since the Foundation was established in 2014, it has provided millions of dollars in grants to organizations and individuals in pursuit of its mission and pillars to create a healthier United States through triathlon.

    Athletes run into the water to begin a race.

    Our Vision: A healthier America through triathlon


    USA Triathlon Foundation’s Elevate 2028 Strategic Plan outlines the path toward increasing philanthropic support, encouraging a culture of philanthropy, and providing a greater impact for donors and members of the multisport community.

    The USA Triathlon Foundation raises funds for and makes grants in support of three pillars – encouraging youth participation, inspiring pathways to access and inclusion, and igniting Olympic and Paralympic dreams – to advance its mission and create a direct line to individuals, organizations and initiatives across the country that are dedicated to transforming lives through swim, bike and run.
