ACA Launches the Medal of Giving

The Tokyo Games’ postponement has been devastating to many U.S. athletes and para-athletes and the organizations that support them. The Giving Games fundraising initiative, which launched today, is a collective effort of 22 Team USA National Governance Bodies (NGBs), including ACA, to ask fellow Americans to support and sustain our organizations and our athletes during these challenging times.



Unlike athletes and sports organizations in most other nations, U.S. athletes do not receive government funding. Instead, the NGBs and athletes receive financial support through individual donations, sponsorships, membership dues, and event revenues. Many of these revenue streams have been severely curtailed this year due to the pandemic.


As part of the Giving Games, ACA is conducting a direct fundraiser between today and August 9, the Tokyo 2020 Games’ original dates, and we need your help. Please donate now.


In the spirit of competition, ACA will award a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal to our top three donors at the conclusion of the Giving Games! The donations you make through our website come directly to ACA. No matter how large or small, every gift will make a huge difference to our athletes and the programs that support them!



We need your help to spread the word – please post on social media about your support, share and engage with our posts, and share the Giving Games donation links with YOUR friends and family – let them know WHY our athletes need everyone’s help TODAY.


Let the Giving Games begin!


Check out for other fun and additional opportunities to support our athletes through the Giving Games.
