Sloane Stephens Foundation

About Sloane Stephens Foundation

The Sloane Stephens Foundation was established by professional tennis player and U.S. Open Champion Sloane Stephens in 2013 at the age of 20, and the Foundation’s signature program, Love, Love Compton, was developed in 2015. We empower children to dream and achieve big, on and off the tennis court, by countering limiting factors such as poverty, community violence and inequitable academic opportunities.
