The CrossFit Community Health Fund
The CrossFit Community Health Fund belongs to the CrossFit community, and exists to support the health and fitness causes and local generosity that characterize the CrossFit affiliate community.
PROGRAMS AND GOVERNANCE
- Grants and Fundraising Program
Over the years, CrossFit and the CrossFit Foundation have raised and donated millions of dollars to support public charities and nonprofits associated with the CrossFit community (such as the Fragile X Foundation, Operation Surf and Infant Swimming Resource) and for organizations which are aligned with the Foundation’s mission to improve health (such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Decatur Memorial Hospital and Kirby Medical Center).The CrossFit Community Health Fund distributes grants from the Foundation’s designated charitable fund and coordinates and supports select fundraising events (typically in the form of a community CrossFit workout) at the local and national levels.
- Nonprofit Advisory Support
The Community Health Fund also supports the philanthropic endeavors of individual charities within the CrossFit community by providing the leadership of those charities with opportunities to network and receive fundraising training and programmatic advice. These meetings, currently occurring biannually, strengthen the grassroots element of the CrossFit community’s response to health needs. The Foundation also provides fundraising counsel and training to individual charities on an as-needed basis.
