US Soccer Foundation

Formed from the surplus funds generated by the 1994 World Cup, the US Soccer Foundation officially opened its doors in 1995 with an endowment of almost $50 million dollars. Since then, with the publicity and enthusiasm for the sport generated by the 1994 World Cup and sustained by the 1999 Women's World Cup, participation levels of men, women, and children have increased significantly. Simultaneously, the Foundation's ability to fund soccer programs across the country has also increased. The Foundation is continually striving to meet our mission - to enhance, assist and grow the sport of soccer - by seeking out and supporting new partnerships and programs each year.
