2023 Annual Fundraising Campaign

November 2023
Dear Friend of Orienteering,

As an orienteer, you understand the thrill of navigating through unfamiliar terrain. Orienteering is not just a sport; it’s an adventure. Through your support, Orienteering USA can bring more adventure to more people.

OUSA is embarking on a new strategic direction with a focus on improving services and sponsoring innovation. We believe that these initiatives will help the sport of orienteering to succeed into the future.

Improving Services

Through website improvements, educational programs, and monthly online forums, OUSA wants to connect everyone with the resources they need. Whether a club is looking to improve their events or an athlete is looking to improve their performance, we want to help. We will also continue to support our teams and juniors in their quest for competitive excellence.

Sponsoring Innovation

OUSA is also committed to supporting innovative ideas for the future of orienteering. We will provide funding for clubs or individuals who want to try out new ideas, expand their reach, or learn from the experiences of other organizations.

Your Support is Needed

OUSA cannot achieve these ambitious goals without the support of our members and donors. Make a one-time donation or a monthly recurring donation. Your contributions will help us to:

  • Provide grants to clubs and individuals that are helping to grow orienteering.
  • Fund junior orienteers who want to improve their skills or learn more about event management or mapping.
  • Support our teams with funding for international competitions.


Orienteering USA is a Section 501(c)3 nonprofit. Your gift may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes and for employer matching.
