Circle of Gold


As an Olympic sports organization we are dedicated to helping climbers become world-class competitors. By empowering national teams, clubs, coaches, parents, officials, volunteers and fans, we are committed to the progression of our sport, our athletes’ success, and the value of the team. 

Circle of Gold embodies a committed group of donors that believe in better supporting our athletes so that they can reach their fullest potential. Unlike their international competitors, our athletes receive no government funding. Athletes are funded by our members, donors, partners, and the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee.

Your support will ensure our athletes have access to world-class coaching, training, technology and direct athlete support they need to strive for medals on the biggest stage and inspire our nation.

Impacts of Funding the Dream

The reasons for making a gift are personal and varied. While larger gifts are instrumental in achieving our transformational goals, gifts of all sizes are just as essential to our well-being and growth.
