With a mission of “Changing Lives through Tennis”, the USTA Florida Section Foundation provides financial support to organizations that help people of all ages and abilities improve their health and quality of life through the great game of tennis.
Who We Are
We have supported and helped fund programs for more than 120 different organizations in communities across the state of Florida.
Further Organization Information
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors with a wealth of experience, tremendous passion for sharing the love of tennis, and a big heart for helping people across the state of Florida.
They hail from the top of Florida in the Panhandle and south to Plantation, and their experience and titles include presidents of tennis organizations, charitable organizations and industry. They are the seven-person USTA Florida Section Foundation Board of Directors, driving the organization that is the official charitable arm of the United States Tennis Association-Florida Section (USTA Florida). The board is responsible for directing grant dollars and assistance for after-school and P.E. programs for at-risk and special populations; grants for programming for underprivileged and at-risk children and adults; and the renovation, refurbishment and building of quality public tennis facilities along with tennis programming and instruction. Here is a personal look at the seven-member board of the USTA Florida Section Foundation and what drives their volunteer efforts:
