The Winchester Sports Foundation
Sports and fostering young athletes is very important to Winchester High School. According to their official website, “The Winchester Sports Foundation was organized in 1989 by a group of Winchester parents and sports enthusiasts as a result of severe budget cuts to the Winchester High School’s athletic budget. That year the athletic budget faced a $60,000 deficit and the high school considered instituting a $35 per student “sports and transportation fee. To negate the need for this fee, the Foundation raises money from an annual golf tournament, an annual campaign, and through individual and corporate donations.”
