Sloane Stephens has always been committed to giving back and supporting her community. As she competes at the highest levels of her sport, winning the US Open in 2017 and rising to become the #3 ranked player in the world, she also dedicates her time to charitable efforts with the Sloane Stephens Foundation. She founded the nonprofit in 2013 at the age of 20 to provide more opportunities to underserved children through education and sports.
Through her foundation, Sloane has helped level the playing field for over 8,000 underserved youth nationwide who otherwise would not have access to safe environments to learn, exercise or play.
Sloane continues making her impact through the $20,000 Sloane Stephens Doc & Glo Scholarship, created in honor of her late grandparents who were instrumental in Sloane’s life and firm believers in the power of education. This scholarship will support 20 students in paying for their education and following their dreams. All high school seniors and current undergraduate students with a GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible to apply.
