USTA Serves awards $1.7 million in grants

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — USTA Serves, the National Charitable Foundation of the United States Tennis Association, announced today that it has granted 34 community tennis and education organizations in the U.S. more than $340,000 in grants. Combined with scholarship awards, USTA Serves distributed $1.7 million in 2012.

The bi-annual grant process, a national initiative of USTA Serves, was developed to provide disadvantaged, at-risk youth with the opportunity to participate in tennis and strive for academic excellence, and to help combat childhood obesity by promoting healthy lifestyles. To date, USTA Serves has disbursed more than $11 million to 236 programs that support its mission.

“USTA Serves is happy to support these organizations throughout the country who strive to provide systemic change for America’s youth, by promoting tennis and education,” says Deborah Larkin, Executive Director, USTA Serves. “These organizations share our belief that tennis, combined with education, can have a lasting effect on the lives of children and help pave the way to a brighter future for them. It’s an honor to support these organizations, and we applaud them in their efforts.”

The grant recipients are chosen by a Grant Proposal Review Committee comprised of USTA Serves board members and USTA national staff, with important input from USTA sections and committee personnel. Grants are awarded to programs that successfully demonstrate the ability to provide quality programming and measurable outcomes.

The following programs were awarded 2012 year-end grants by USTA Serves:
