Areas of Need

The USA Rugby Trust identifies a handful of projects each year that focus on rugby outreach and development, nutrition, and safety. Below is a description of the different areas where your gift can make a difference.

Greatest Need

Unrestricted gifts are the most impactful because they are able to be directed to wherever the need is greatest. These gifts support youth rugby and coaching programs as well as outreach and granting programs that foster and grow the game in communities across the country.

Shanagher Morrison Referee Fund

This program provides an annual scholarship for promising referees to spend an entire season in a major international rugby community. Participants in this program will receive a real cultural experience; living the life of a young referee, working and refereeing alongside his/her peers, addressing the same challenges, and receiving the same opportunities.

National Teams

Whether you are looking to support future Olympic hopefuls through 7s or the long standing tradition of XVs, your gift will help identify, train, and support future rugby heroes. Which National Teams can you directly support?
