Finance and Funding Resources

The Principles of USSA Club Finance and Funding:

  • The financial priorities and funding initiatives match the organizations stated mission and vision.
  • All resources are properly managed and accounted for.
  • Finances and funding are transparent to all appropriate constituents.
  • A case for supporting your organization is developed and communicated.
  • Resources are developed and available to adequately support the mission and vision.

Below are resources and information about best practices that will help USSA clubs meet these principles. For more in-depth access to these types of resources, as well as direct support, forums with other club leaders, resource sharing, potential deployment of Club Expert Consultants and other opportunities for developing your club, see USSA Club Certification.
