The Areté Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to serving McKinney and its surrounding areas by fostering the athlete in all of us and supporting families. Our mission is to promote physical fitness, character development, and personal growth through athletic programs and resources. We aim to create a nurturing and inclusive environment that empowers individuals and families to thrive. Through partnerships, community engagement, and educational initiatives, we strive to enhance the well-being in those we are blessed to coach and serve, and strengthen the positive fabric of our community.
We live in a wonderful community and have been blessed by many families that wish to “give back” to their community. If you are one of these families who wish to help financially we encourage you to contact us to learn more. It is amazing what a small group of people can do!
"We created this foundation as an extension of our Areté family, born from a desire to give back to the community that has fueled our passion for youth sports. Our commitment is personal - rooted in the belief that by giving, we not only strengthen our community but also nurture the very spirit that has made Areté a home for aspiring athletes and compassionate hearts." - Founding Members, Lance and Marianne Black
