Support Your Academy on “Giving Tuesday”

By November 18, 2016News & Events

As America marks “Giving Tuesday” on 29 November 2016, why not use the occasion to support your United States Sports Academy?

Giving Tuesday is a national celebration associated with the holidays and the season of giving.  Participants are encouraged to make a gift on that day to charities and non-profits that make a difference in our nation and world. The timing is perfect, as the Academy is currently reaching out to faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and supporters during its annual fundraising drive.  All who believe in the Academy and its missions of teaching, research and service are encouraged to participate in the drive and Giving Tuesday.

The Academy was founded nearly a half century ago on the belief that the quality of sport education and coaching needed to be improved if American athletes were to perform competitively and safely at the top levels in sport.

Now known around the world as “America’s Sports University®,” the Academy is the nation’s largest sports university with thousands of graduates at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree levels. The Academy has changed lives by launching successful careers in sport, and these graduates have elevated sport and the sport profession worldwide.

In addition to our teaching programs, the Academy’s research and service programs have also touched countless lives in our community and around the world.

As an independent, non-profit institution that does not receive state or federal appropriations, the Academy must continue to be creative to find the right mix of funding to enable it to continue achieving its objectives.  Private giving is an important part of this equation.

The Academy asks for your generous support as we continue to touch lives and enhance sport and the sport profession. We ask that you make a tax-deductible gift to the Academy today and that you remember the institution as you make your long-term philanthropic plans.  You can give immediately by going to www.ussa.edu/donate or call the Academy at (251) 626-3303.
