The Chattahoochee Foundation was established in 1999 by the partners of Universal Tennis Academy (UTA)– David Drew, Tim Noonan, and David Stolle. At the time of founding, UTA was located at Chattahoochee Plantation in East Cobb. The UTA partners started the charity with the purpose of helping promising young tennis players reach their potential. In addition, the Chattahoochee Foundation helped to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes, Dream Makers Foundation, and local Boys and Girls Clubs.
In recent years, UTA has expanded to include nine separate facilities throughout the Atlanta area. The growth of the tennis academy has been accompanied by a multitude of new opportunities to help the less fortunate through the sport of tennis. Due to generous donations and numerous fundraising events, the Chattahoochee Foundation now touches a variety of deserving communities in and around the Metro Atlanta area.
