2018 Annual Report


2018 was an incredible year for the USA Swimming Foundation and we have hundreds of donors thank! Together, we accomplished the following triumphs:

  • The U.S. National Swim Team brought home 43 medals and 10 meet records from the Pan Pacific Championships where the U.S. was awarded the team title.
  • The USA Swimming Foundation was able to provide more than $700,000 in grants to 151 Make a Splash Local Partner Swim Lesson providers, a nearly $200,000 increase in funding over previous years.
  • The USA Swimming Foundation was able to support our National Team athletes and coaches with more than $780,000 in funding and our sport development efforts with $120,000 in support. 
  • The Make a Splash Tour presented by Phillips 66 celebrated 10 years of raising awareness and spreading the importance of learning to swim.

Your donation helped to make all this possible and we simply couldn’t have done it without you!
