The National Gymnastics Foundation was created from the energy and excitement generated by the gold medal Olympic effort of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Proceeds totaling $1.4 million from the 1984 Olympics were used to establish the Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Since that time, more than $1,073,000 has been granted to USA Gymnastics to assist in achieving its mission to encourage participation and the pursuit of excellence in the sport. An additional $166,000 has been expended on restricted grant programs, such as athlete scholarships, to assist athletes’ continuing development.
Today, the Foundation’s assets total more than $5.5 million. Under the able leadership of Robert Wood, a newly elected Board of Directors is looking to increase both the assets of the Foundation and the opportunities for assisting USA Gymnastics and its programs.
