Charities and Causes

The International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum plays an active role in preserving the history of tennis. It works with tennis partners, around the world, to gather artefacts to showcase. The museum welcomes 21,000 visitors annually. In addition, over 4,500 children are admitted to the museum free of charge through the Kids Free program, supported by donations.

The Hall of Fame Tennis Championships also supports the the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center (MLKCC). Founded in 1922, MLKCC provides urgent food services, educational programs for children, programs promoting self-sufficiency for adults, and general social service support for the 10.8 per cent of Newport’s population living below poverty.

The ITHF and Hall of Fame Tennis Championships provide gifts-in-kind and donations in support of MLKCC's community work, Thanksgiving and Christmas basket contributions, and have provided the Casino Theatre on the ITHF campus for a joint event hosted by MLKCC and the Newport Historical Society. 

Highlights

The Kids Free Program was launched in 2010, and since then over 13,200 children have toured the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum free of charge. The ITHF has also funded transport for local youth groups to visit the museum.

In 2015, the tournament received a $15,000 ATP ACES For Charity grant in support of MLKCC’s hunger relief programs, which use various strategies and delivery methods to accomplish the goal of decreasing the number of food insecure individuals in Newport County. More than 2,500 different individuals are served annually.
