"Ultimate is the most exhilarating and supportive sport I have ever played."

About the Foundation

The Ultimate Foundation was founded in 2014 and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that funds new and established programs that support players, coaches and organizers who help our sport grow to represent, include and be led by people who represent the racial, ethnic, gender and socioeconomic demographic diversity of our country.

The Ultimate Foundation supports USA Ultimate programs like:


The Ultimate Foundation aims to deliver the sport of Ultimate to all without limitation by supporting USA Ultimate programs which:

–  equip players, coaches and organizers of historically underrepresented identities with resources,

–  develop leaders and people,

–  invest in growing a diverse talent pool of players and coaches, and

–  remove barriers to participation at all levels from recreational leagues to our National Teams.

How we Drive Change

The Ultimate Foundation funds USA Ultimate programs that drive gender equity, racial equity and reduce economic barriers to playing ultimate.  We strategically target our funds towards youth with the intention of building the next generation of ultimate players to represent the diversity of our country. In order to drive this change, we are directing funds to provide resources to make it easier to start and continue teams made up of majority BIPOC youth, girls and nonbinary players, and players from low income backgrounds. We also distribute scholarships to ensure that financial barriers never limit participation.

With our expansive network of coaches, players and organizers, we believe that by strategically investing in local communities, we can make a nation-wide impact on making our sport more diverse, inclusive, equitable and accessible.


We see a world where everyone has the opportunity to experience ultimate.
