Partnering for Impact

When partnering with the NATA Research & Education Foundation, you contribute to the advancement of the athletic training profession. The NATA Foundation’s work benefits every athletic trainer and every company associated with the profession, as well as the broader physically active community. Athletic trainers are healthcare professionals visible on sidelines, job sites, stages, battlefields, and even in space. They collaborate with physicians, providing preventive services, emergency care, clinical diagnoses, therapeutic interventions, and rehabilitation for injuries and medical conditions.

The NATA Foundation relies on the financial support of dedicated athletic trainers, corporate partners, and industry friends to achieve our goal of supporting and advancing the athletic training profession through research and education. We cannot achieve this goal alone. Partnerships and sponsorships magnify our impact, enabling us to provide scholarships to educate future generations and conduct research that enhances practice and healthcare, ultimately elevating the value and recognition of athletic trainers. We seek partners who share our values and aspirations and welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can work together to make real and lasting impact on the athletic training profession.
