Ginepri has supported the Foundation with donations from his sponsors Babolat and Under Armour along with financial donations from charity exhibitions.

Atlanta Youth Tennis Foundation
The mission of the Atlanta Youth Tennis Foundation is to promote higher education and to combat truancy, juvenile delinquency, and teen violence utilising skills derived from the game of tennis through after school sport programs, leadership development programs, advanced skill development programs and the making of distributions to projects, organisations or individuals whose vision is in keeping with Youth Foundation’s mission.
The Ginepri Fund
In April of 2007, the Ginepri Fund was created by USTA Atlanta and the Atlanta Youth Tennis Foundation in order to honour, thank, and recognise the Atlanta native for his ongoing support over the past three years to the Atlanta Youth Tennis Foundation.
The mission of the Ginepri Fund will be to provide assistance for a variety of projects including tennis and non-tennis based initiatives in addition to support for youth tennis players who show a financial need and dedication to academic excellence.
