The ALTA Foundation Inc

A nonprofit organization

The ALTA Foundation, Inc., founded in 1986, was created by the Atlanta Lawn Tennis Association, Inc. (ALTA) to promote health, character, sportsmanship, and responsible citizenship by using the game of tennis to support, not only amateur tennis athletes, but programs for the disadvantaged - economically, physically and mentally challenged - and to provide new opportunities for under-served youth and other tennis programs. Through its various programs, the Foundation reaches thousands of adults and juniors throughout the Atlanta area.

Thanks to the great work that goes on at the Foundation thousands of people benefit from the generous grants and scholarships which are given out each year. Grants are distributed to groups that enrich the community and serve disadvantaged youth and special needs athlete programs in the tennis community. Some of the programs supported by The ALTA Foundation include Georgia Special Olympics tennis, Serve & Connect, KidsLuvTennis, Special POPs Tennis, Tennis People, Keeping Pace, AYTEF, Blaze Sports youth wheelchair programs, Wheelchair Clinics and Tournaments, and it's own recently created START Program (for Title I high school tennis teams in the ALTA area).  Additionally, current and former Junior League ALTA players graduating from high school are eligible for college assistance as eight $2500 L. Keith Wood Memorial College Scholarships are awarded annually by The ALTA Foundation. 

The ALTA Foundation is looking to expand it's recently launched original initiative,  Support for Teaching Atlanta Recreational Tennis (START), which targets the development of tennis programs in Title I high schools throughout the Atlanta area.  The program will donate funds for certified coaches, certified coach training fees, and funds money towards uniforms or other team tennis equipment needs.   In 2022, the Foundation is looking to expand beyond its Cobb County pilot program schools, currently in this program, to assist two Title I high schools in each of the five Atlanta area counties ALTA serves.
