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 of these events, not only helps encourage monetary assistance, but also builds a sense of community.

From the Olympian
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.”
