The United States Fencing Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of USA Fencing and is dedicated to supporting the pursuit of excellence for fencers at all levels across our sport, from those just learning to fence, to U.S. Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls, to veteran fencers. By providing funds to teams, athletes and programs, the U.S. Fencing Foundation supports USA Fencing as they work to build champions and create a legacy for future generations of fencers.
The United States Fencing Foundation was established in 1986 as a result of the United States Olympic Committee's unprecedented financial success and surplus in hosting the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Games. In 2022, the Foundation became the philanthropic arm of USA Fencing to streamline our fundraising efforts and be more efficient. The Foundation’s sole purpose is to support USA Fencing and its efforts to grow and support the sport of fencing in the United States. The United States Fencing Foundation is a 509(a)(1) nongovernmental nonprofit organization.
