The Lindsey Vonn Foundation is committed to engaging the community and our future generation with a positive and constructive atmosphere. We focus on strengthening the community by supporting girls through scholarships, education and athletics. With our all-girl program we create a comfortable environment for growth as athletes, as learners, and as individuals.
As the Lindsey Vonn Foundation is just starting out, funds are appreciated more than ever. All donations and funds raised will be put towards programs to help girls achieve their dreams. Our goals this year are to fund more girls camps, inspire confidence through more speaker series, and give more scholarships to the girls who need it.
