The IHRSA Foundation's mission is to promote health through exercise.

As a 501(c)3 charitable organization, the IHRSA Foundation executes this mission through four strategies:

  1. evidence-based programming,
  2. research,
  3. education, and
  4. engagement.

The IHRSA Foundation envisions a future where thousands of clubs offer programs and services to support the more than 80 million inactive Americans, helping them to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle.

In 2019, the foundation continued to build on the progress made in 2019. In this report you will find:

  • IHRSA Foundation Accomplishments in 2019,
  • A preview of what’s Next in 2020,
  • A recap of 2019 fundraising,
  • A list of IHRSA Foundation supporters.

With the support of IHRSA clubs and partner organizations, we can move the dial toward a more inclusive industry, and a more physically active country and world.
