Idaho Tennis Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in 1974 as a non-profit organization with the goal of providing financial assistance for junior tennis programs in Idaho. The Foundation is currently governed by volunteer board members representing the various provinces across the state. An Executive Director manages the day-to-day operations of the organization. Idaho Tennis Foundation is recognized as exempt as set forth in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
In 2010, Idaho Tennis Foundation adopted a gifting policy and funding direction of raising money to support the Tennis is Elementary after-school program. This state-wide afterschool program is designed to introduce the game of tennis to elementary school students by using the USTA “QuickStart” format. The program can take place in a gym, cafeteria, parking lot or multipurpose room while using smaller racquets and foam balls. Click HERE for more information on the Tennis is Elementary program.
Specifically, the Foundation will fund scholarships for students, equipment costs, instructor pay, and any administrative expense. It is the goal of the Foundation to provide every elementary school student the opportunity to participate in the program and learn the game of tennis in a fun and welcoming environment.
We need your financial support!!! We have over 200 trained instructors and 346 elementary schools interested in the program across the state. We need your financial support to allow us to provide tennis opportunities to every child in the state.
