The Campaign | USET Foundation

The Campaign

Historically, our pattern of philanthropy has been cyclical: donations reach high levels during Olympic years and dip lower in the three years that follow. Our organizational needs, however, do not rise and fall in the same pattern. The building of champions takes a long-term sustained effort.

With growth and sustainability in mind, we have identified two major funding priorities that will make it possible for the USET Foundation to Raise the Bar.

Cultivating Greatness


Competing at the top of equestrian sport and bringing home medals takes more than just drive and dedication. Annual contributions to the USET Foundation are critical to building and maintaining a world class US Equestrian High Performance program that provides a pathway for athletes and horses, from developing to the elite levels. The USET Foundation provides an annual grant to US Equestrian to ensure program funding throughout the pathway for competition and training, chef d’equipes/coaches, developing programs, Nations Cup competitions and international championships including Pan American Games, World Championships, Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Investing in Our Future


Ensuring a future of competitive excellence in equestrian sports for the United States means creating a burgeoning source of unprecedented revenue that transcends the ebb and flow of donor support and the vicissitudes of economic and political cycles.
An endowment will accomplish just that—and will recognize and celebrate those whose annual support has enabled us to move forward from a position of strength. These invaluable resources will serve as a catalyst and supplement the traditional monies raised from our generous friends and donors each year.

Your gift to the RAISING THE BAR campaign will:

  • Ensure athletes and teams access to the resources necessary to represent the United States in international competitions around the world.
  • Guarantee that a performance enhancing and highly-respected equestrian program will continue to be a hallmark of American athletics, fostering sportsmanship, goodwill between nations and achieving excellence.
  • Serve as an influential vote of confidence for the importance of a program that produces sustained, competitive excellence at the highest levels of international sport and inspire others to support the USET Foundation.
