About Giving Tuesday
Thank you for considering giving back on #GivingTuesday. Your gift helps to alleviate the financial burden on athletes and teams who represent the U.S. in international competition. For example, in years past, the international competition budget included the costs of sending USADSF staff. This year for the 2019 Winter Deaflympics we were able to remove the following expenses from athletes’ overall costs:
* USADSF removed the cost of USADSF staff in the athletes’ budget.
* USADSF is covering the costs to send a 6-person media team including the “well-known” Daily Moth reporting team.
* USADSF is providing an interpreter, team doctor, and a trainer whose expenses are removed.
* USADSF incurred other increased expenses (apparel, insurance, flights,etc) but was able to cover these additional costs without increasing the athletes’ budget.
In perspective, we are “saving” money for Team USA (athletes, coaches and directors) by continuing to decrease their overall budget resulting in less financial burdens on our athletes. With support from our fans we plan to continue this trend therefore allowing our US athletes to focus more on training and competing to bring home the GOLD! Thank you for being a part of our team!
