In an effort to enhance the well-being of those in the communities where IRONMAN events are held, The IRONMAN Foundation provides charitable support to a variety of local nonprofit organizations that recognize citizens in need and support the Foundation’s mission.
Through our Community Fund, The IRONMAN Foundation provides grant funding opportunities as a way of leaving the IRONMAN legacy behind after race day. The IRONMAN Foundation works with community leaders to identify deserving projects and initiatives in need of funding that will make a measurable and meaningful impact within the community. Proceeds from The IRONMAN Foundation’s Community Fund support these initiatives.
IRONMAN athletes contribute to the IRONMAN Foundation’s Community Fund through several different programs, including:
The Community Fund distributed over $1.6 million dollars in funding to 1,252 organizations in 2016.
