Legacy Society

Making a legacy gift is a powerful way to demonstrate your lasting support of United Soccer Coaches and its mission to serve, advocate, and educate coaches at all levels of the game. Legacy Society donors share their love of the game and the value of coaching education by ensuring its future for generations to come. Members of the Legacy Society ensure that experiences they have had in the association continue to be available to the next generation of coaches. Legacy Society members designate the United Soccer Coaches Foundation as a beneficiary in their wills so that after their lifetime a portion of funds from an account of their choice transfer into a charitable gift to the United Soccer Coaches Foundation.

“Being a life-long student of soccer has allowed me to pursue my passion. I have made the game a big part of my life. Soccer helped me develop as a person; and grow to become a successful soccer coach and administrator; and an accomplished businessman. Both on and off the field, soccer opened doors and exposed me to many people, places and things. The United Soccer Coaches organization is the community of enablers, support, and allies that were always there for me. I owe so much to the game of soccer and the United Soccer Coaches. This is why I’ve chosen to be a member of the Legacy Society. It is an opportunity for me to leave something for the benefit of others and contribute to the growth of our beautiful sport in perpetuity.”

Cornerstone Society

The Cornerstone Society was created for the purpose of recognizing those individuals, foundations, and organizations who through their extraordinary generosity have had an immeasurable impact upon the sustainability of United Soccer Coaches Foundation. While gifts of all sizes are appreciated and contribute to growth and sustainability, gifts highlighted in these Circles of Giving are of special note for their transformational impact upon the growth of the Foundation. Additionally, these levels of giving represent a donor’s lifetime gift allowing donor’s to join these Circles through multiple gifts over several years. We hope as you consider a contribution to United Soccer Coaches Foundation, you consider joining our Cornerstone Society. Membership in the Cornerstone Society is based upon contributions to the Foundation at the $1,000 level or higher.

** Indicates an original Cornerstone Partners donor who donated to United Soccer Coaches Foundation prior to our current campaign. As founding donors of the endowment, some original Cornerstone Partners were listed within the Cornerstone Society’s Partner Circle irrespective of the amount of their donation in the early years of the endowment. 

“United Soccer Coaches, formerly the NSCAA, has been a big part of my life ever since I joined the organization in 1966. As a young coach then, I benefited from attending the annual convention, where I learned a lot about all aspects of coaching. Senior members encouraged me to become involved in the coaches association, and I responded with service to the game and the association at the local, regional, and national levels. Lasting friendships ensued; the game of soccer has been the catalyst for memorable moments to last me a lifetime. it is with gratitude that today I can give back to the United Soccer Coaches and support the association in retirement. My wife Helen and I are proud to be part of an organization which has shaped our lives so positively.”

Member Since 1966, Former Colorado College Men's Soccer Head Coach
