USA Swimming

The USA Swimming Foundation’s mission is to save lives and build champions.  We do this in part by helping to strengthen aquatic programs and provide financial support for children to learn the life saving gift of swimming.

USA Swimming Foundation Youth Learn to Swim Grants are intended to expand current programming in order to reach under-served and under-represented populations and communities that would not otherwise have the opportunity to learn to swim. Grant funds may be used specifically for the purposes of offering free or reduced-cost swim lessons (i.e. scholarships) and/or to cover the cost of transportation to/from the swim lesson site(s).*

Interested applicants must be an approved provider within the Swim Lesson Provider Network by November 1, having previously completed the Swim Lesson Provider Network Application within the SurveyMonkey Apply platform.  Youth Learn to Swim Grant applications submitted without having met the pre-requisite Network application and its deadline will be declined.

*USA Swimming Foundation Youth Learn to Swim Grant funds are not intended to provide budget relief, support facility overhead, construction or renovation, aid in the purchase of material goods (including equipment, apparel, etc.), or be used for advertising, promotional, or marketing purposes.

Funding for free or reduced-cost swim lessons to help children across the country

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The USA Swimming Foundation announced today that it has awarded $507,461 to learn-to-swim programs across the country through its first-round of 2019 grant funding for Make a Splash Local Partners. The grants will go towards swim lesson programs, providing 25,705 children with the opportunity to learn how to swim.

The USA Swimming Foundation vetted more than 240 applications through a competitive annual review process and chose 85 programs to receive funding, 26 of whom are first time USA Swimming Foundation grant recipients. Since 2007, the USA Swimming Foundation has awarded more than $6.2 million dollars to help fund learn-to-swim programs across the country. 

“It’s an incredible feeling to know that USA Swimming Foundation funding will be used to create a valuable swimming experience for tens of thousands of children who may not have had the opportunity to learn how to swim,” USA Swimming Foundation Executive Director Debbie Hesse said. “We are thrilled with the depth of this year’s Make a Splash Local Partner applicant pool and we couldn’t be prouder to support these exciting and lifesaving opportunities for children across the country. We owe a tremendous thank you to our partners and donors, who continue to make a difference.”

In 2018, through its Make a Splash Local Partner network, the USA Swimming Foundation helped provide more than 1.3 million children with swimming lessons. Together, the Foundation and their network of 1,000 swim lesson providers across the country are helping to spread national awareness on the importance of learning to swim and bringing together strategic partners to end drowning. More than 7.5 million children have now been served since 2007.
