Join us for another 135 years of excellence.

Founded in 1883, Fencers Club is the longest continuously existing organization dedicated to fencing in the Western Hemisphere. Now we need your help to pursue excellence for another 135 years.

We are in the process of purchasing a permanent home for the club at 20 W. 33rd Street, next to the Empire State Building. This new, state-of-the-art facility will allow us to continue to make an impact in our community as a not-for-profit organization and build a better world through sport.

In order to reach both our fencing and fundraising goals, we need the support of our members, families and community to make our new facility a reality. Please, share our campaign with friends, family and others who would see fencing not only as a sport, but also as a way to develop character, critical-thinking skills and lifelong learning.

Here is a snapshot of what a gift to Fencers Club goes toward:

  • Teaching more than 250 Military Veterans how to fence while promoting physical fitness and emotional well-being for those who have served
  • Mentoring and coaching more than 1000 middle- and high-school students in NYC
  • Providing the best fencing facility for more than 600 active members, ages 5 to 85+
  • Funding numerous scholarships and training grants for athletes training at all level to reach their goals
  • Supporting athlete, coach and referee development programs for the entire Pan-American region
  • Offering world-class support services, including sports medicine, nutrition, sports psychology, video analysis and replay systems, physical conditioning and more
  • Building a strong partnership with the Peter Westbrook Foundation
  • Promoting a diverse, welcoming community of fencers, families and friends who all share in our goals of community service, giving back and advancing themselves and others
