Giving Wings to Youth
The Olympic Club Foundation is a thriving grant organization supporting organized sports for thousands of under-served kids throughout the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties.
The Mission: “to support programs that share the belief that participation in organized athletics enriches young lives and develops future community leaders.”
The Olympic Club Foundation Board Members, staff and volunteers work throughout the year on various events that support programs for underprivileged Bay Area youth to participate in sports. Your support and attendance at these events not only helps encourage monetary assistance but also builds a sense of community.

From the Olympian
Members hosted an extremely successful ONE CLUB Challenge on September 11, showcasing some of the Club’s top athletes and raising $30,000 for The Olympic Club Foundation, which makes grants to Bay Area nonprofits providing organized athletic programming to children and teens from low-income homes.
Members have been able to enjoy Fight Night, while at the same time supporting The Olympic Club Foundation, since 2016. This year, as with so many other things, Fight Night is not able to take place. But you can read more about the event and the impact it has on young fighters in the community in the October Olympian, out later this week.
In 1992, the Winged “O” Foundation was formed, formalizing Club members’ long history of charitable works, which date back to December 1860. Just seven months after the Club formed, members put on an exhibition at Platt’s Hall to benefit a “young ladies’ seminary,” focusing their efforts there because “what is now known as physical culture was included in the course of instruction for the school.” Founding members W.S. Lawton and Arthur Nahl surprised the audience with “feats of grace and daring thought impossible to amateur athletes.”
