What can you do to help
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a fun and safe environment for kids of all ages (even the over 40s ones) to learn and practice the sport of fencing. All the money taken in by the club goes towards this goal, and much of the work done at the club is by our dedicated volunteers. There are numerous ways that you can help us out.
Because we are a 501(c)3 charity, your donation is tax deductible. HoF gladly accepts donations of all kinds: Gatorade, snacks, supplies (cleaning supplies, paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper etc), and, yes, even cash. All donations, big and small, are welcome!
Hooked on Fencing is very proud that we are able to provide excellent fencing at an extremely affordable price. Our rates are 2-3 times lower than many other clubs of similar quality! Hooked on Fencing mission continues to be to bring fencing to as many people as possible, and we continue to do so. However, as we grow, our need for support increases as well. Any contribution is greatly appreciated, from $5 to $5,000 and beyond. Please help us keep our rates affordable, so that many more can learn this fantastic sport!

And one of the best things EVERYONE can do is tell others about Hooked on Fencing!
