About the USA Cycling Development Foundation
Who Are We?
The USA Cycling Development Foundation (USACDF) is the non-profit fundraising arm of USA Cycling for U.S. national and Olympic team young athlete development. The USACDF was incorporated in 2000 as a 501(c)(3) to raise money for year-round support of athlete training and development, competition and travel needs. The Foundation receives no federal funding or subsidies and operates solely through private donations from individuals, corporations and other foundations. The money raised by the Foundation supports athletes in all disciplines of competitive cycling.

Where Does the Money Go?
The Development Foundation has contributed more than $8,000,000 to USA Cycling athlete development programs for junior, under-23 and women's programs since it's inception in 2000. Development Foundation grants to USA Cycling are directed towards those programs that are listed under Funded Programs. The Edmund R. Burke Fund for Cycling Development athlete grants, along with the Kuck and Stenner Collegiate Scholarships are made possible through the generous annual gifts from our donors through online donations, USAC race license donations and with other donations dedicated specifically to these funds. Please consider a gift today.
