Boston Fencing Club
The oldest club in the country, since 1858.
The Boston Fencing Club Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization that aims to increase the physical and financial accessibility of fencing across the metro-Boston area. We work with local organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Waltham, in order to expose more young athletes to the sport. Moving forward we hope to raise the funds to make programs such as these consistent and reliable ways for students from all areas to have fun and keep fit. Any donation to our cause helps!
