New Logo, New Name announced for MaliVai Washington Kids Foundation

MWYF Color StackedThe MaliVai Washington Kids Foundation  announced today that it is ‘tweaking’ its name and changing its logo to better match the services it provides and the members it serves. The MaliVai Washington KIDS Foundation will now do business as  The MaliVai Washington YOUTH  Foundation. The name change is coupled with a comprehensive rebranding effort including a new logo which places more emphasis on academic and personal success.

“When we first started this organization, we only provided tennis programs to elementary aged youth”, said MWYF Founder, MaliVai Washington.  “Our new name and logo identifies the fact that, although tennis will always be a part of our programs, we now place more emphasis on learning and success in life.   We also serve youth from kindergarten through young adult program alumni who are now students in college.  We hope the change will portray our mission more effectively especially to those who may not be aware of what we do,” commented, MaliVai Washington.

The name change will be effective August 1 and will be rolled out through the end of the year.

MWYF is also excited to announce special guest, Andre Agassi at this year’s Merrill Lynch/Bank of America Gala at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa on October 17th. More information on this event can be found at or by calling 904-359-5437.
