Give To Your Passion
The United States Racquetball Foundation (USRF) is a non-profit foundation that is dedicated to the growth and preservation of the sport of racquetball in the United States. Our mission is to create an endowment fund that will be used to make grants that will support a variety of worthy Racquetball Programs.
We believe the sport needs nurturing and your support to ensure racquetball continues to grow and thrive into the future. Without access to courts, quality instruction, competition, and travel expenses for the next generation of racquetball players, the sport very well could fade away. For this reason, our motto "Give To Your Passion" is paramount. It is we, who love and are passionate about the sport, that have the responsibility to make sure this passion is passed on to athletes today and in the future.
As our Foundation grows, our goal is to help young athletes gain access to courts, instruction and fund competitions by forming partnerships with racquetball enthusiasts, businesses, health clubs, health organizations, schools, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, YMCA, YWCA and other groups and individuals dedicated to encouraging an active lifestyle and involvement in a lifetime sport.
The United States Racquetball Foundation has been granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit status by the Internal Revenue Service. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
