The Foundation and Our Big Goals


Winter Park Volleyball Club (WPVC) Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, is a ‘Family-First’ organization and is looking to expand its giving opportunities.


The funds raised through the foundation will be used to assist players with financial hardships through club tuition scholarships, as well as helping to improve the facilities and equipment players use to train.


These funds are tax deductible and we have set a goal of raising $40,000.00 this year.


We had been working on the idea of a foundation for several years, but it wasn’t until a club parent with a similar vision for the club they love helped us make the foundation a reality in 2022. With the WPVC Foundation in place we have a way for companies or individuals to donate to our foundation and receive a tax deductible write off for their donation. The money raised for this foundation will be used to help those truly in need of financial assistance to be able to play at our club and help us update our facilities and training equipment. The opportunity all donations and sponsorships provide will be life-changing for all the children receiving financial aid.


At WPVC, we pride ourselves on being a place where everyone can find a team to play on. We know that being part of team sports can be so great for kids. When a child can play a sport in an environment which is a positive place to develop as an athlete, learn how to be a good teammate and to find a connection with friends...this is when sports can truly change lives. We feel that our club provides that type of environment and we pride ourselves on being able to offer that opportunity to as many children as possible.


Club sports requires a major time commitment as well as a large financial commitment. While the benefits of youth sports are many and unmatched, the cost for some is extremely challenging. Some families just don’t have the means to pursue this opportunity. It's a difficult situation to maneuver when financial aid is not available. For these kids, it is impossible to become involved without it. Our goal is to provide the opportunity to as many participants as possible and the ability to gain valuable life skills through athletics. Some of these skills include teamwork, perseverance, leadership, and responsibility which can help them maintain a healthy, active, and successful adulthood.


WPVC does what we can to help! Currently, 11+% of our WPVC participants are on scholarship and there is a greater need than can be currently met. With the loss of employment during the pandemic, recent losses due to Hurricane Ian and inflation increasing every day, the need for financial assistance has become greater than ever. Because of this, we are looking for business and/or individual donations/sponsorships. We are also looking for teams and families to participate in our silent auction on February 11, 2023 (more info to come). We are thinking of new ideas every day to help bring in donations to allow us to help as many players as possible.
