As the national governing body for gymnastics, USA Gymnastics is a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee. The USOC is a nonprofit organization and relies on the generous support of a committed community of sponsors and donors to provide America's elite athletes the support they need and deserve. The USOC is one of the only National Olympic Committees in the world that does not receive government funding for its Olympic programs.
