Prescott Pickleball Association, established in 2017, was created for the purposes of establishing public pickleball courts in the City of Prescott and promoting the game for the Prescott Community. It established an agreement with the Arizona Community Foundation (ACF), Yavapai County. The purpose of the ACF Collaborative Fund Agreement was to accept donations for the purposes of building public pickleball courts.
It transitioned to a tax-exempt Social Club pursuant to section 501(c)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code in 2020, listing the sole purpose of the club to promoting the sport of pickleball within the Prescott community. The intent of the organization at that time was focused on players, events, member benefits and attaining tax exempt status (thus avoiding concerns of being a for-profit entity.
Everything in the history has been in line with the Mission, Vision and Values of the organization.
