About Raise our Flag

This year you can donate a stitch in America’s flag for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. But you’re not just building a symbol of pride. You’re providing housing, training and equipment for the most elite athletes in America. Because unlike athletes from other countries, our Olympians receive no government funding and rely on your support.

Raise Our Flag is an official United States Olympic fundraising program. Donate your stitch before July 12 and be part of the team behind the team.

From our Athletes

Every U.S. Olympian and Paralympian has a “team behind the team.” It could be that coach who nurtured their talent or the parents who provided endless encouragement from hard bleacher seats. Watch a few of this year’s Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls tell their team story.

Our flag is more than stars and stripes. It is a flag in which every stitch represents another American and a symbol of our pride in being the team behind the team. Explore the stitch numbers below to see who has donated. Buy a stitch to add your number to the donor wall.
