Grants Policy

The NSAF budgets approximately $200,000 annually for athlete support. Grants are made to athletes based on national ranking and a defined need for travel and hotel expenses assistance to NSAF events as well as to other major track and field and cross-country events nationally.

Since 1991 the NSAF has awarded well in excess of $1.6 Million in grants to deserving athletes and club programs. Great care is taken to ensure that accepting an NSAF grant does not in any way threatened or compromise an athlete’s amateur eligibility. (link to Grant Policy Guidelines).

Funds for grants are generated through the NSAF’s three major annual events, the New Balance Indoor and Outdoor Nationals and the Great American Cross-Country Festival, as well as from generous donations from our sponsors and supporters.

The NSAF provides several opportunities for anyone to become a supporting member of Team NSAF. Whether you simply want to make a donation, sponsor an individual event at our meets, help defray costs of athletic and educational programs or create marquee value for your business with a meet sponsorship, we can tailor a plan that fits you and your budget. And, since the NSAF is a 501-c-3 not-for-profit organization, your donation is tax deductible!
