The National Nordic Foundation is one of the country’s premier grassroots sport-fundraising organizations. With over $120,000 in the 2018-2019 season alone allocated to “pillar projects”, these key events help nurture the talent and drive of developing skiers, whereby the NNF is creating a cultural change in the way US skiers approach international competition.

Where do the NNF Funds go? The NNF supports all levels of development. Funding ranges from early World Cup starts by Olympic Champions Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins, to the less funded USST athletes like Sadie and Eric Bjornsen, Taylor Fletcher, Ben Loomis, Kevin Bickner, Caitlin Gregg and Noah Hoffman, to budding stars such as Hailey Swirbul, Patrick Caldwell, Scott Patterson, Julia Kern, Katherine and Ben Ogden, Hannah Halverson, Gus Schumacher, Luke Jager and Hunter Wonders and so many others.

The NNF has been funding development for years. Every year the NNF funds a large portion of the US World Junior and U23 teams, helping athletes across the nation ascend to the highest levels of world Nordic events. The NNF supports athletes that get a taste of European competitions at the OPA and Scando Cup level. It helps defray almost 100% of the costs of REG and NTG summer camps for juniors. It has also granted money to a myriad of Clubs, Coaches and Officials at the community level. The NNF is an integral part of our Nation’s building blocks and success. Furthermore, the NNF, through its annual fundraising efforts, the Drive for 25 and the NNF Auction, catalyzes the US skiing community to come together.

Become a part of the National Nordic Foundation. Participate in this year’s “Drive for 25” beginning October 20, 2018 and help us spread the word on skiing, help our grassroots mission and help us get more racers to the start line and to the top of the results. The Theme of this year’s campaign is “Going Gold!”
