July 20, 2008 launched a series of events that led a team of inspired individuals to think, to plan, to execute, together.  Who could have imagined a 12-year old girl who loved to play a game on a field with 22 players, 2 goals and 1 ball could lead a group to establish an organization inspired by her? An organization that aims to ensure that every child in the greater San Jose area has an opportunity to enjoy not only the sport she loved, but any sport, regardless of their financial status.  That is what foundation47 is all about.

Foundation47 was created to provide scholarship opportunities to student-athletes looking to play competitive sports at a higher level who don't have the means to support the expenses. Through participation in foundation47 events, student-athletes can apply for and be awarded scholarships to essentially cover expenses incurred to participate in their given sport.  

In July of 2010, foundation47 launched its inaugural event, the Quicksilver Cup 6v6 Soccer Tournament. With the support of a number of teams from the greater Bay Area, foundation47 will have the pleasure of awarding scholarship funds to kids who participated in this annual event. As foundation47 ramps up for its next event, “On Your Toes” the Hannah Welker Memorial Soccer Tournament, we invite you to be a part of our mission.
