The Irv Alten Foundation helps individuals and groups in support of handball. Here are a few examples of how Foundation funds have helped advance the sport.

The Alten Foundation has been instrumental in the success of Pacific University’s handball program. Many young athletes, most new to the sport, receive the financial benefits bequeathed by Irv and Gloria Alten through their Foundation. The generosity of the Board of Directors in allocating matching funds and covering other expenses, such as tournament entry fees, has made it possible for over one hundred men and women from Pacific University to participate in the US Collegiate Championships the past five years. The results have been astounding, including four consecutive team titles and numerous individual titles. The Pacific University Handball Club greatly appreciates the Alten Foundation’s generous and continuing support and thanks the Board and the Altens for their foresight and work.

Pacific University Handball Team

I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for the opportunity I had to compete in the 2019 USHA Collegiate National Tournament. Your generosity made my experience in Minneapolis one of a kind. I was originally seeded in the top 40 out of roughly 200. Overall I finished in the top 24 of all collegiate players, and I could not be happier with my overall experience. Thank you again for all of your support.
