About the NSF

The National Steeplechase Foundation, Inc. is referred to as the NSF. It is a 501(c)3 so your donations to this publicly supported organization are deductible within the limits of current federal and state tax law. The NSF is exempt from federal income taxation.

The NSF is a wholly independent organization. All decisions and actions are determined by its Board of Trustees.

The NSF was created in 1995 with the objective of preserving steeplechase horse racing in the United States. Its areas of focus are safety, education, amateur participation and the overall promotion of steeplechasing or, what many call it, American jump racing.

Mission, Values, Vision, Work

For more than 200 years, American jump racing has been about people’s experiences. Owners’ dreams, spectators’ interest, trainers’ knowledge, organizers and officials’ vision, and jockeys’ skills have continually intersected to create possibilities.

The mission of the NSF has long been to preserve and advance the sport through programs that promote education, health and safety and the spirit of amateurism.

But the future depends on your foresight and generosity so that the NSF can create new opportunities that will advance American jump racing long past this era.

NSF’s Values
With foresight in mind, be inclusive, collaborative and innovative

NSF’s Vision
Inspire people to have a passion for American jump racing
