Open Letter to all Judo Supporters

From:   Noboru Saito

Happy New Year.

I am writing to ask your help to meet one of the biggest challenges the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has put before the USA Judo Board of Directors.

This is a big year for USA Judo: USA Judo will be hosting a number of major international championships, including the World Cadet Championship (U 18 years old) this summer.  These events offer American judo competitors the opportunity for elite competition close to home and also raise the profile of American Judo here in the USA and internationally.

However, USA Judo needs funding to host these events.

This year, for the first time ever, USOC will give USA Judo a matching grant up to $35,000 towards this year’s USA Judo Board of Directors fund raising effort. Not only that, USOC will release the matching funds as the USA Judo Board of Directors raises money.  In other words, as soon as we, as USA Judo Directors, raise $5000, USOC will release the matching $5000 to USA Judo.

I have already secured some funding, but we have a long way to go yet. I would appreciate if you consider giving your hard earn money to USA Judo for this purpose.

Any amount will help. I have attached the contribution form to this letter, or you may contribute online.

Again, thank you very much for your consideration of this program.

Sincerely yours,

Noboru Saito
USA Judo Board of Director
