The Southern California Tennis Association Foundation has once again partnered with Amazon’s fundraising program to support Southern California tennis communities, tennis providers and tennis organizations with a simple smile. That’s right, it starts with AmazonSmile, a community outreach fundraising campaign that donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases on Amazon to a charity of your choice. You can help by making the Southern California Association Foundation your charity of choice.
The donations will allow the Southern California Tennis Association Foundation to offer scholarships and grants to players of all ages and stages, those with disabilities, veterans, seniors, high performance players and more. We support under-served communities, low income populations, adult leagues, teaching professionals and youth summer camps. We also offer scholarships to junior players that show promise.
The Southern California Tennis Association Foundation strives to make tennis an equal opportunity sport. How can you help?
