Portsmouth Sports Foundation, Inc.

The "Foundation" was created in 1991 by the Portsmouth Sports Club for the purpose of providing scholarship grants to deserving, graduating high school student/athletes from the City of Portsmouth and Western Branch High Schools.

The "Foundation" has created a charitable endowment through the efforts of The Portsmouth Sports Club membership, and contributions from local businesses, charitable foundations, and many individuals.

It has been the goal of "The Foundation" to build an endowment that will support the increase in both number and dollar amount of future scholarships. This has been accomplished this year with the awarding of eleven scholarships in the amount of $3,500 each. The Foundation Board and the Sports Club will continue to evaluate this objective in the future, and make the appropriate increases as the endowment's growth allows.

Currently, five of the awarded scholarships are given in the names of W. O. "Bill" Lewis, Past President and Sports Club Person of the Year; Joseph & "Boots" LoFurno, Life Member and his wife; Chandler Harper, member of the PGA & Virginia Sports Hall of Fame; Marty Brennaman, Ford C. Frick Award Winner/ The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and a member of the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame; and Roland "Buck" Dodson, current Chairman of the Sports Foundation, Past President and Sports Person of the Year.

Since the inception of the Portsmouth Sports Foundation, the scholarships awarded through the Jamboree in 2012 was approximately $312,000.00.

The balance of the endowment fund is now $200,000.00. You are invited to become a part of this very worthwhile endeavor by making a "Tax Exempt" contribution to The Portsmouth Sports Foundation, Inc., P. O. Box 237, Portsmouth, Virginia 23705.
