JL Stacks NC NJTL Endowment

In memory of her late husband, J.L. Stacks, Jean Stacks Harrold established this fund to epitomize a life well-lived and to make available to underserved NC NJTL youth, tennis & education opportunities that would have been beneficial to JL as a young tennis player. No surprise that J.L.'s humility, strength of character, and firm work ethic exhibited in his personal life also carried over to his professional life - and on the tennis court!

Scott Pollard
Jr Development Fund

Scott Pollard passed away after a brave battle with cancer in August 2020. To honor his memory, Phi Delta Theta fraternity brothers and many friends have come together to create a fund to assist Junior NC tennis players to develop and compete at the highest levels.

Saunders-Langford Endowment

The Saunders-Langford Endowment provides juniors the opportunity to experience tournament tennis and reap the benefits of competing and developing lifelong relationships. This endowment provides need based grants to players from small North Carolina communities to help them participate in tournaments.

Emily H. Preyer Family Endowment

The NC Tennis Foundation completed a capital campaign raising over $1.7 million in 2006. A portion of that money went to help create a new NC Tennis Hall of Fame which opened at the Harold T. and Mildred F. Southern North Carolina Tennis Center in 2008.


A main focus of the campaign was to create the NC Tennis Foundation Emily H. Preyer Family Endowment Fund.  The NC Tennis Foundation offers grants annually from the endowment or gift fund.
