American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF)
In-kind support to USA ski clubs to promote participation in cross-country skiing. This program focuses on both adult and youth skiers. The purpose of this program is to promote cross-country skiing as an energetic and fun activity that is part of an active and healthy lifestyle.
The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation (ABSF) is extending a helping hand to Nordic ski clubs through the ABSF's Pay It Forward program. Knowing each club has unique needs, the ABSF will Pay It Forward by supporting a club's efforts in a way that works for them.
What might that look like? With its extensive access to skiers, perhaps ABSF can help you recruit new members or connect skiers as Birkie training partners. Or, ABSF can provide an enthusiastic speaker and compelling presentation to help generate Nordic skiing excitement at your club’s fall kick-off meeting. Maybe ABSF can help you find ways to promote youth skier development to ensure the future of the sport and your club. Whatever your need, ABSF may be able to help. The Foundation's goal is to help individual clubs promote a healthy, active Birkie lifestyle and further develop Nordic skiing in their areas.
To encourage growth in the sport, the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation established the Pay It Forward Program to assist clubs through non-monetary needs. The ABSF is not currently offering financial grants.
