All proceeds will benefit the Michael Weiss Foundation (MWF), a non-profit organization supporting promising skaters. The Foundation is headed by Michael Weiss, a two-time Olympian and three-time U.S. National Champion, his wife Lisa Thornton Weiss, and his mother Marjorie Weiss and was created to address the issue of the high cost of figure skating and the lack of financial support currently available.
MWF Mission: Since 2004, the Michael Weiss Foundation (MWF) has raised over $300,000 for deserving applicants who possess Olympic potential in the sport of Figure Skating. The MWF will continue to provide Olympic eligible United States figure skaters with financial support to assist in all facets of training and competition with an emphasis on continuing their education. Training as an Olympic hopeful can include expenses associated with coaching, choreography, costumes, music selection/editing, educational costs and tutoring and total up to $65,000 per year. Annual Scholarships are awarded every December to skaters who are having trouble meeting their financial needs.
