T2 Foundation Announces GRANTS AVAILABLE
The T2 Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports alpine, cross-country and freestyle skiers. Our annual grant program helps offset the costs associated with training and competing at an elite level. T2 athletes also give back to the youth and ski community by connecting the athletes we support with kids around the country through organized events and programs.
This year, to round out our sphere of influence within winter sports, we are officially starting a new grant program aimed at skiers ages 14-19. The T2 Junior Team Grants are designed to help the country’s best young talent continue within the development pipeline. The grants will be awarded based on need, merit, school standing and contributions to community.
The ultimate goal of this program is to make sure that America’s best young skiers have the opportunity to become the world’s best.
Another Successful National Club Day!

HKD is offering a 20% discount to USSA clubs as part of its "White to Gold" program!
Keep in mind that RallyMe is the “Official Crowdfunding Platform” for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association. From raising $1,500 to $50,000 USSA clubs and individual athletes are using RallyMe.
RallyMe.com is a fundraising site for ANY athlete, team, and athletic organization. RallyMe is part of a new industry called crowdfunding that takes an old idea (many people contributing a small amount to accomplish a big goal) and merges it with the power of social media and networks.
HOW ARE USSA CLUBS USING IT?
Clubs use RallyMe to raise money for a multitude of purposes: buying a new piece of equipment, funding an athlete scholarship program, or even a capital campaign project. Women’s Ski Jumping USA, for example, used RallyMe to sell tickets to its annual gala benefit and ended up capturing 40 percent more in outright donations than in previous years. The club exceeded its online crowdfunding goal by $8,000.
