With its core values of sportsmanship, learning, integrity, inclusivity, and excellence, the foundation is continually developing new ways to achieve its mission to empower children around the world to dream big and achieve on and off the court.

With tennis as its focus, the foundation offers a range of educational programs, including college preparatory programs and after-school tutoring, while also partnering with the Compton Unified School District for the Compton Summer Tennis Camp and Reading Lab and The Sloane Stephens Foundation Summer Reading Readiness Program. The foundation and CUSD also collaborate on a Leadership Academy, a year-round program where students are given a dedicated mentor to help them learn important life tools, including professionalism, college readiness, and career and workforce preparation.

Community building is also an important aspect of the foundation. Love, Love Compton, in partnership with the USTA, transforms elementary school playgrounds and parking lots into tennis courts. To date, more than 4000 students have participated in this program, which also has dedicated volunteers, including Compton School District teachers. A similar initiative is the STAR (Scholar Tennis at Recess) program, which brings recess to life with structured tennis play and development of physical literacy.

Sloane’s foundation also works with many national groups to further philanthropic efforts. Net Gen Tennis, whose mission is to spread the love of tennis to a new generation, offers coaches, organizers, and teachers access to the USTA in order to work with experts to develop coaching methods, teaching materials, and digital tools. The foundation has also partnered with the Special Olympics, Boys & Girls Club of Broward County, WTA, National Recreation Foundation (NRF), and Soles4Souls.

“In 2013, I founded the Sloane Stephens Foundation with a primary goal of enhancing the quality of life for youth, through exposure to tennis as a basis for life-long learning, and healthy lifestyle choices. I am so thankful to have realized my dream as a tennis career, and I am passionate about creating opportunities for young people to achieve their dreams and become their best selves.”
