The International Olympic Committee is a not-for-profit, civil, non-governmental, international organisation made up of volunteers which is committed to building a better world through sport. It redistributes more than 90 per cent of its income to the wider sporting movement, which means that every day the equivalent of USD 3.4 million goes to help athletes and sports organisations at all levels around the world.

The IOC is the leader of the Olympic Movement. It ensures the regular celebration of the Olympic Games and supports the hosts to ensure the most sustainable Games’ delivery. It supports athletes, coaches and the development of sport through the 206 National Olympic Committees, the IOC Refugee Olympic Team, the International Sport Federations, the Organising Committees of Olympic Games and other organisations around the world by initiating and funding programmes and projects, based on revenues generated from its partnerships with commercial and broadcast entities and strong collaboration with governmental and non-governmental organisations.
