As our young athletes who started in our program achieve incredible results on the national and international table tennis courts, and our team evolves under new management and a new name, the Maryland Table Tennis Center (MDTTC) Aspiring Junior Team, the way HW Global Foundation supports them never changes.
Our annual campaign will partially fund the participation of our talented, young athletes in training camps and tournaments all year long. To stand out among other rising stars, our kids work hard all year to qualify for these special events, and we do not want their families' inability to pay for these events to hinder their progress. Funds donated through this campaign also help pay for coaching and training fees for approved applicants. Please note that our annual campaign will not cover any operational costs HW Global Foundation may have.100% will go to our young athletes to allow them to train and compete at a high level at national training camps and tournaments. We will have a process for families to request funds to help their worthy kids attend special training and competition events. We summarize these events on our website.
All donations for this campaign, up to $15,000, will be matched by HWGF Founders Wen & Hans Hsu and an anonymous donor! Please donate now to double your donation!

Our Olympic Dreams
Table tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world but is still growing in popularity as a sport in the United States - it remains one of only a few Olympic sports in which the U.S. has not medaled. The HW Global Foundation Talent Development Program, which my husband and I founded, hopes to change that. We are working to raise up new generations of table tennis players who not only excel at but are great ambassadors of the sport. The number of kids that the Foundation supported has grown from ten at its inception to over forty. The #1 player in the U.S. under age 11 joined our TDP program at its inception. Our young athletes train all week with their coaches and compete in local and regional tournaments year-round. They have Olympic dreams.
To keep reaching for the stars, our kids need your support! We're raising $15,000 to fund our inaugural HW Global Foundation Annual Campaign to ensure that our young athletes have the training and competition opportunities they need to succeed in the sport they love. Competition and training at a high level is expensive for the families of our young athletes, who already pay for private lessons, group training, and equipment. If you can help us reach our goal, you will be supporting the growth of table tennis in the United States and most importantly, inspiring our kids to reach for their dreams throughout their lives!
Join us in making an impact on our young athletes and the sport of table tennis in the USA by supporting the HW Global Foundation's Annual Campaign.
Kudo from a Parent
We are extremely gratified to receive the appreciation of our families as their children learn and grow through our program. One email we recently received follows.
Thank you for giving (my child) the opportunity to join Talent Development Program. (My child) learned invaluable lessons from you and the teammates. This experience is life changing and cannot be learned from books. (He) is very lucky to have you as his coaches.
Thanks again for your coaching and this great educational program.
Wen Hsu and her husband, Hans, founded the HW Global Foundation and its Talent Development Program in 2015 to improve the lives of children ages 6+ through the Olympic sport of table tennis. In 2021, the Talent Development Program evolved into the MDTTC Aspiring Junior Team under the management of MDTTC but HW Global Foundation is a sponsor.
HW Global Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to advancing the lives of girls and boys through the Olympic sport of table tennis, and to developing the best table tennis talents in the United States. Children in the program learn the skills and values of hard work, problem-solving, perseverance, a positive attitude, teamwork, self-confidence and commitment to excellence that will help them achieve future successes in life.
HW Global Foundation, Inc. is a United States 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (EIN: 46-4510112), and all donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
