National Gymnastics Foundation Men’s Fund

In 1999, the Men's Development Program Committee (formerly the JOPC) took a bold step for the future of men's gymnastics by adopting a Men's Scholarship Program at the Junior Level. The scholarship program mandates that a one-dollar donation be collected for every athlete participating in a men's USA Gymnastics sanctioned event where a fee is charged. This one-dollar per athlete fee was initially for scholarships only. This one dollar per athlete fee would be donated to the National Gymnastics Foundation’s Men's Scholarship Fund. Since then, over $500,000 in scholarships have been awarded to student athletes. The funds that have been raised from August of 1999 to September of 2020 have been, and will continue to be, used exclusively to provide scholarships to current and future collegiate gymnasts.

The Men’s Program leadership has realized over the years that there is a greater need for support throughout the program. Therefore, in October of 2020, the Board of Directors of the NGF voted to update the name and purposes of the NGF Men’s Scholarship Fund in order to serve more gymnasts. What has previously been known as the NGF Men’s Scholarship Fund will now be referred to as the NGF Men’s Fund. Funds collected from October of 2020 and beyond will be used by the NGF Men’s Fund to provide financial support to a wider population within men’s gymnastics for multiple purposes including, but not limited to, individual academic scholarships, elite athlete training grants, elite development team support and collegiate program support.

The Process:
The competition or event director for every men’s' sanctioned event will be required to forward one dollar for every participant to the National Gymnastics Foundation. A check, made out to the National Gymnastics Foundation, must be included in the Sanction Report Form which must be submitted to USA Gymnastics following every sanctioned event.

What is The National Gymnastics Foundation?
The National Gymnastics Foundation was established in 1988 from proceeds totaling $1.4 million from the 1984 Olympic Games. Since that time, USA Gymnastics has received various Foundation grants supporting activities to assist USA Gymnastics in achieving its goals to encourage participation and the pursuit of excellence in the sport. USA Gymnastics is the Foundation's sole member.
