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.

Ways to make it better...

There is no reason the people raising money for this organization should be making less than 20k a year salary.
