Make An Impact
Daniel Borgertpoepping | December 12, 2018
USTA Northern was founded on Jan. 9, 1961, as the Northwestern Lawn Tennis Association. In 1977, the name was changed to Northwestern Tennis Association; in 1998, the name changed again to USTA/Northern Section; and in 2006, it changed to its present name.
On Jan. 1, 2012, USTA Northern became a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the mission of promoting and developing the growth of tennis.
How can I make a tax-deductible gift to benefit tennis in our section?
There are many ways to support our mission. The most common is by donating new or gently used racquets, shoes and bags. Other types of giving include contributions toward scholarship programs, sponsoring tournament registration and travel fees and making gifts in honor of someone who impacted your love of tennis. Any of these methods qualify as tax deductions.ADVERTISEMENT
Another way to support
USTA Northern is a partner with Youthprise, an organization committed to reducing disparities with and for Minnesota youth to increase support for our tennis and education efforts. Through Dec. 31, 2018, Youthprise will match contributions - up to $62,000 - that specifically support our National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) programs which seek to develop the character of young people through tennis and education. This effort is called our Youth Urban Tennis and Education Campaign.
NJTLs offer a variety of on-court programming and also educational and life-skill components to enhance a player's overal development. It's a great way for kids to get exercise, make friends and have fun in a team-oriented and safe environment.
The USTA Northern Board of Directors allocated $30,000 toward this match. Join us to maximize our efforts.
All gifts received between now and Dec. 31, 2018, will be matched in support of our NJTL programs delivered locally at InnerCity Tennis in Minneapolis, Saint Paul Urban Tennis and Fred Wells Tennis and Education Center at Fort Snelling.
Donations can be mailed:
1001 W 98th St #101, Bloomington, MN, 55431
Donations can be made through USTA Northern's secure giving page.
Thank you for your interest in growing the game and bringing more people to our sport!
