NWA Fencing Foundation


NWAFC’s nonprofit arm is Northwest Arkansas Fencing Foundation which is a 501(c)3 Corporation committed to offering life-changing opportunities to Northwest Arkansas youth in the areas of higher education, college scholarships, nutrition education and obesity prevention, through the sport of fencing.

NWAFF has served more than 1,000 children ages 6 to 18, including children while they are residing at the NWA Children’s Shelter, children participating in Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and children qualified for school free and reduced lunch programs.

The money raised through the foundation makes it possible for students of all socio-economic backgrounds to participate in fencing.
