The Kelly Brush Foundation is excited to announce that our 2021 Ski Racing Safety Grant Program application is now OPEN. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, June 30.


More information and apply here >


Please share this email with everyone on the team at your club that makes on-hill safety as well as budget decisions.


We at the Kelly Brush Foundation hope safety is always a priority discussion at your club. Since Kelly's injury in 2006 we have been committed to leading the discussion on safety and have backed up our advocacy with over 190 grants to clubs around the country to improve safety on their venue. If you have any questions about our grant program, your application, or anything else about the Kelly Brush Foundation's ski racing safety mission, don't hesitate to reach out.


About the KBF Ski Racing Safety Equipment Grant Program

The Kelly Brush Foundation Ski Racing Safety Grant Program is intended to help Alpine ski race programs and venues purchase safety equipment. All grants are matching (meaning we will only fund up to half of an equipment purchase). We have been administering this program for 15 years in addition to the safety advocacy and educational programming we provide the ski racing community.


About the KBF

Since Kelly sustained a spinal cord injury ski racing in an NCAA D-I race in 2006, we are proud of the change we've driven in the culture of safety. We have helped purchase over 15 miles of b-netting, supported trail widening projects, and contributed to other safety measures at hundreds of venues around the country. We are confident that every US Ski & Snowboard Alpine racer around the country races at at least one venue (or many more) every year that we have made safer. Learn more about our ski racing safety mission:
