Individual Donors

As with many grassroots, not-for-profit organizations, our financial support has relied heavily on gifts from individual donors. Many of our supporters have been extremely loyal and closely connected to us, by attending our annual events year after year; providing critical year-end gifts; joining the Giving Tuesday movement; and providing monthly congtributions that help stabilize our operation and programs over the course of each year. We are so grateful to all of our individual donors and would not have lasted our first 50 years without their steadfast partnership in all that we do.

Current Partners

Grantors underwrite HJTEP's operating costs, making it possible to hire dedicated and talented coaches and staff, fund court rentals, purchase equipment, and pay tournament fees and travel costs. Some donors choose to Sponsor-a-Student-Athlete.

Our Impact

Much more than a tennis program, our blended sports, wellness, and education programs have taught, mentored, and shaped our young student athletes into tennis champions and leaders, ready for the next steps in their unique life journeys. We have been rooted in our Harlem community for over 50 years, holistically serving youth and families.

  • Our student athletes maintain a GPA of 3.1 on average
  • 95% of our youth graduate from high school and 80% go on to attend college
  • 65% receive non-athletic financial aid and 25% earn tennis scholarships
"Not only does HJTEP offer an amazing tennis program, but they stress the importance of education which is a parent's dream! They talk about it to the kids and they talk about it to the parents, offering several tutoring and enrichment programs to help kids succeed at school. I think that speaks volumes about a sports program!"
