Are you interested in a WPSC Grant?

The West Point Spouses’ Club is organized entirely of volunteers and exclusively for charitable purposes. Our top priority includes raising money to provide grants and educational scholarships that benefit the West Point community and the military community at-large. 

We also support regional and national foundations that align with our mission. In 2020, we proudly awarded grants to 22 different organizations that reside locally, regionally, and nationally. 

Some projects we have supported in the past include American Legion Post 633, Wreaths Across America, and TRIBE, which is dedicated to teaching mindfulness and connection through the practice of yoga. We also support organizations like United Though Reading, who help military children stay connected and close to their deployed parent.

The West Point Junior Black Knights Travel Soccer Club was extremely grateful for their grant from the West Point Spouses Club. The grant allowed nearly 100 West Point youth soccer players this spring to participate in virtual soccer training with the New York Coerver Academy. The training was conducted virtually using Zoom and players all across West Point were able to connect with their friends and engage in challenging soccer training with professional soccer coaches. For many players this was the highlight of their week and helped them through the difficult COVID environment. The grant was also used to purchase portable goals and will be applied to additional training this fall. Thank you again for this fantastic support of our West Point kids and the Junior Black Knights Travel Soccer Club.
