The USOC recently created the United States Olympic and Paralympic Foundation to increase the level of contributions directed toward Olympic athletes.

Denney is a former All-American swimmer at Stanford. He is leaving the school's development office after 11 years. Before that, he worked in Stanford's athletic department.
