Do not donate to the USSA. Do yourself and the athletes a favor and donate directly to them. The CEO of USSA (a non-profit organization) is on a 659k a year salary with a 250k a year bonus plus two high end audis... yet, many athletes, including world champions, Olympic Medalist, and World Cup winners have to pay for some or all of their expenses year after year.
If you are interested in having your name on a plaque and making Bill Marolt's wallet fatter, than give your money foolishly to the USSA. If you want to help an athlete succeed, then help them with their season's expenses. Most of the staff are on slave wages, most of the athletes are unfunded; but we still win many competitions against athletes who are funded by their government.
