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.

East Coast Gold commits to strict standards of coaching 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.

Where do your donations go?

  • Athlete hotel and travel costs
  • Summer training camps

Our staff are all unpaid volunteers, so all of your money will go towards helping the athletes!
