Pickleball Pledge

August 2020

Over $450,000 thousand has been raised! Thank you, Thank You!!

And yet, there are still more expenses required to complete the construction and add amenities to the courts.

So if you haven’t already donated, consider doing so now!

Here is your opportunity to contribute to the future of Pickleball!


You may not be aware that the CBOD approved the Pickleball Club’s request to utilize brick pavers acknowledging donations for the construction of the Pickleball courts. The acknowledgement is limited to donor categories: Diamond ($25,000), Platinum ($10,000), Gold ($5,000), Silver ($2,500) and Bronze ($1,000). The monetary level will not be noted, only the category.

Would you like to get your name engraved on a paver lining the walkway to the courts? There will be pavers designated for each category and contributors will get one line on a paver. If you have already made a donation, you may want to add to your donation to reach one of the categories. To make your first donation or to add to your previous donation(s), go to www.evfsj.org and download the Pickleball project donation form (click the “Projects” tab, click “In process”, click “Donate to the Pickleball Project”). Mail the completed form along with your check made payable to EVF to Garry Gray (7777 Beltane Drive).

We appreciate the contribution of all the villagers that have helped us drive this project!



There is an ongoing PLEDGE Project to build dedicated Pickleball Courts here at the Villages. A Pledge is a solemn promise or agreement to do something.  The Pickleball Club’s goal is to raise a minimum of $125,000 in pledges.

Pledge fulfillment will be expected within 30 days after the VGCC Board approves the Pickleball Courts project. This means you need not write a check at this time.  Please consider completing the attached form below and submit it to the “Pickleball box” in the Cribari Center.

The Evergreen Foundation, who is collecting the funds we pledge, is a 401c3 charity. As such, donations are tax deductible. Additionally, if you have access to a matching funds program, you can double your gift by using it!
