What We Support

Youth & Development

We help new youth rugby clubs and programs get started. From Ball Grants and Club Start-up Kits that provide the basic equipment you need to be successful, to supporting Inner City Youth & High School organizations launch new programs, we are helping to grow the game, from the ground up.

Coaches & Referees

We encourage high school and youth coaches to complete coaching and referee clinics sponsored by USA Rugby through Coaching and Referee Grants. Any coach or referee that has completed a USA sanctioned clinic and wants to host their own event, can apply to the program for consideration.

Health & Safety

We have long placed a great emphasis on injury prevention and support a number of studies and programs to minimize the risk of rugby injuries, especially when it concerns those in youth and high school competitions and programs.

Endowment

When you contribute to the endowment fund at US Rugby Foundation, it ensures future stability and a foundation on which to grow. The fund becomes part of the Foundation’s investment pool, and benefits from robust investment diversification and economies of scale.
