    How Is the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) Different than National Governing Bodies (NGBs)?

    The USOC and NGBs have different governing authority. An NGB, like USA Hockey, develops athletes, names teams, and grows the sport throughout the country. The USOC and NGBs work together to bring Olympians and Paralympians to the Games to compete and represent the United States.

    How Is the Usa hockey foundation different than the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Foundation?

    The USA Hockey Foundation has been the charitable arm of USA Hockey, Inc. since 1989. The Foundation’s purpose is to enhance the mission of USA Hockey, Inc. by making grants to various organizations that share its values. The USA Hockey Foundation supports six key areas including: participation, opportunity, safety, player development, education, and commemoration. Donations to the USA Hockey Foundation directly impact hockey in the United States.

    In 2013, the USOC launched the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Foundation. The USOPF serves as the primary source of philanthropic resources for the Olympic and Paralympic Movements in the United States. All funds generated by the USOPF are transferred to the United States Olympic Committee as the sole beneficiary of the USOPF. The USOC and USOPF are separate entities. Donations to the USOC or the USOPF can be used to grow and support many different sports in the United States.
