Donations

Donate To East Coast Gold

East Coast Gold is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, meaning that all of our efforts are funded by donations or sponsorship. Our organization¬†is committed to strict standards of drug free excellence that have elevated us to the largest, most successful weightlifting team in the country. Having produced multiple Olympians and many World/Pan Am team members, we support the Olympic goals of the United States, and your donation will help us bring our country back into the international spotlight. For more info check out our FAQ’s.

Why do we need your donations?

East Coast Gold needs your help! We exist to allow our athletes to compete at all levels, from youth to international, and we cannot do it without your support. Since our athletes compete individually, all the lifters must either work or go to school full-time. Some have precious few resources to travel and compete on their own. Funding is especially helpful to those who qualify for national championship meets but simply cannot afford to go.

Why should you support East Coast Gold and Olympic weightlifting?

Participation in athletic activities has been proven to help our youth develop not only strength of body, but also self-confidence and discipline. We stress proper diet and nutrition to obtain optimum performance and to maintain optimum weight, and as a result Olympic weightlifters enjoy outstanding physical fitness including very low bodyfat. Weightlifting is also a life-long sport for both men and women; we have participants on our team as young as eight years old and as old as 70 and beyond.
