Expand USA Basketball Programs that make social change possible: nurturing young athletes in underserved communities, championing women on the court and in their careers, and elevating BIPOC young professionals (Black, Indigenous, and people of color).
Enable the Foundation to invest in strategic initiatives that teach leadership, coaching, and life skills because what happens on the court doesn’t stay on the court, and leaders in basketball make more resilient, inclusive communities.
Change lives and make a lasting positive impact through the benefits of basketball — confidence, teamwork, cooperation, and perseverance.

“I wouldn’t be who I am today without basketball. It has made me who I am today. It has tremendously impacted me. I definitely apply everything I’ve learned in the sport in my personal and professional life.”

Formed in 2019, the USA Basketball Foundation harnesses the power, influence and global reach of USA Basketball to advance society through a lifetime commitment to communities, players, families, coaches and fans.
Our key areas of focus are:
1. Championing women
2. Empowering youth
3. Promoting social responsibility
Your monthly donation enables the Foundation to plan for strategic investments in each of these programmatic areas, allowing us to innovate and expand in areas where we can have the most influence on and off the court.
