The NorCal Lacrosse Foundation is an independent non-profit corporation which is dedicated to promoting the growth of lacrosse in Northern California by providing support to inspire participation while protecting the integrity of the sport.
The NorCal Lacrosse Foundation was started in 1986 by NorCal Lacrosse Hall of Famer, Sam Sadtler. As the first President he enabled the funding of the foundation through the generous endowment left by Peter Faulkner. Pete was instrumental in starting the Palo Alto lacrosse club in 1965 as well as the first youth programs in Menlo Park.
The Faulkner Fund provides funds for projects which increase the scope of participation and the quality of players, coaches, and officials in Northern California.
Between 1998 and April 2013, the NorCal Lacrosse Foundation was a regional Chapter of US Lacrosse, the national governing body of lacrosse. The NorCal Chapter of US Lacrosse website can be found via this link: www.norcalchapterusl.org
