Bulletin: 2024 Deadline for Donate Your Fencing Gear! Applications

LAUSANNE, Switz., Jan. 22, 2024 – The deadline for federations that would like to apply for support from the FIE Donate Your Fencing Gear! programme is quickly approaching on January 31, 2024.

Each year, national federations submit bids to be considered to receive good-quality, safe fencing gear donated to the FIE. The equipment has been donated at FIE World Championships by athletes, coaches and manufacturers, and is intended to help fencers in disadvantaged realities and/or challenging environments.

The equipment is rigorously tested and approved by the FIE SEMI Commission and distributed annually to selected recipients.

The application process asks interested federations to present how the equipment would be used to benefit fencers and/or projects where access to fencing equipment is limited due to cost or other factors. Later in the year, they report on how the equipment was used with short case studies.

If your federation would like to apply to the Donate Your Fencing Gear! programme to be a 2024 recipient of equipment, please click the link below to apply. The link also provides background information on the programme for you to review:
