USA Swimming Foundation Awards Additional $157,745 in 2023 Learn-to-Swim Grant Funding


The USA Swimming Foundation, the philanthropic arm of USA Swimming, today announced $157,745 has been awarded to an additional 21 swim lesson providers via its Learn-to-Swim Grant program. The two rounds of grants awarded this year by the USA Swimming Foundation combined for more than $800,000 to 125 providers across 33 states. 

“With these additional funds being awarded, it is estimated nearly 18,000 individuals will have the opportunity to learn the lifesaving skill of swimming,” USA Swimming Foundation Senior Director of Development Elaine Calip said. “By adding to the over $7 million already distributed throughout the program’s tenure, we are proud to continue making a direct impact on communities across the United States.”
