It's Not Too Late - To Help USA Karate this Holiday Season

by USA-NKF

December 29, 2023

As you may have heard during the last USA NKF Open Board meeting, we have received a very generous anonymous donation in the amount of $25,000 with the intention that it be used as a Matching Grant. 

What does that mean? It means that between now and December 31, 2023, the hope is to raise the full amount, and that means that every dollar you donate will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. This gift is unrestricted, no strings attached. 

NEW INFO: Exciting news! The donor has agreed to extend the matching period until January 31, 2024, with the understanding that the matched funds would be used towards new team warm up uniforms and to help off set the costs of getting athletes to the JR World championships in 2024.  

We are excited to report that in just a month we have received $15,696.24, from over 80 donors, and we are almost 2/3 of the way there! And we still have a month to achieve our goal! There's still plenty of time for your gift to make a big difference.
Special thanks to the following generous donors who have stepped up to support the USA NKF:
