Squash Renovation Project
In 2015, The Fund received a pledge, from a Racquet Club member, to donate $1 million dollars to build three squash courts on the second floor of the Clubhouse. The purpose of this donation was to accommodate the high demand of squash at The Racquet Club, but most importantly, they were to be used to promote the game of squash and the valuable life lessons that accompany it. To help serve the mission of Fund, the Board of Directors is finalizing a youth program that will use these courts to the benefit of local Philadelphia children.
