About our federation

Sports Charities USA - Supporting Youth, Disabled, and National Team Athletics (SCUSA) is a federation of America's finest national organizations dedicated to providing sports and outdoor recreation opportunities for all. We help America's Team bring home Olympic gold!

SCUSA is proud to offer donors a wide range of organizations working to enhance the lives of children, youth, and adults through competitive, recreational, and therapeutic sporting opportunities while encouraging healthy, active lifestyles.

There are many benefits to giving to SCUSA:

  • SCUSA's charities cover a variety of concerns. Because our charities are grouped under the SCUSA federation banner, it's easy for you to find the group or groups you wish to support.
  • More of your dollars go to benefit the charities for which they are designated, and less to administrative and overhead costs.
  • For workplace givers, it's an easy way for employees to give to the causes they wish to support. Many workplace giving programs offer payroll deduction plans, a painless way to give to the charity of your choice. And, for employers who don't have a workplace giving program, SCUSA and its consultant staff will help you get one started.


Membership

All SCUSA agencies are screened annually to ensure that they meet the highest standards of substantive program services, management and fiscal responsibility.

Governance

SCUSA is governed by a board of directors that includes representatives from member charities, donor groups, and other constituencies. All board members are volunteers serving without compensation. The board of directors oversees the administration of services to SCUSA member agencies and ensures that high eligibility standards are maintained. It does NOT determine how much money each agency will receive - that decision is left to the contributor. Gifts made directly to SCUSA are shared among all its member agencies in the same proportion as each has received donor-designated gifts.
