The Peter Westbrook Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that uses the sport of fencing to develop life skills in young people from underserved communities throughout the New York metropolitan area. Since the program began 1992, the PWF has helped enrich the lives of thousands of young people and their families. Along the way we’ve had extraordinary success helping the young people that we serve reach both their athletic and academic potential.
The success of our program has been widely documented in a print, television, and digital media including:
60 Minutes II, CBS, CNN, FOX News, NBC News, People Magazine, TNT, The New York Times, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Philadelphia Enquirer, The San Francisco Chronicle, Sports Illustrated, Smithsonian Magazine and The Today Show.
Among the many honors that PWF has received over the years, perhaps the most significant was receiving the Oprah’s Angel Network “Use Your Life Award” which initiated our endowment fund.
