Why the Paseo Club cares — our philosophy about community

February 7th, 2024 | 3 min. read

By Jen Azevedo

The Paseo Club is a private club in Santa Clarita that is our members’ home away from home for a healthy and connected life. It is your family’s headquarters for health, wellness, court fun, fitness, and social engagement. 

But the Paseo Club is not just here to help you work out, so you can fit back into your favorite jeans or hit the best backhand possible. We are a community hub supporting the greater Santa Clarita Valley and its residents.

The Paseo Club is committed to making a positive difference in our members' lives and community. We are dedicated to collaborating with local nonprofits and charitable organizations to give back to help those in need. 

In this article, we will share with you why the Paseo Club gives back, how we help local organizations, and what events you can look forward to supporting with us in 2024.

The SCV is a special place to live, composed of families and individuals who engage in the community and are proud to give back to those in need. 

The Santa Clarita community has excelled in providing green open spaces, building connections with fellow residents, and helping those facing hardships.

Paseo Club is inspired by the dedication and ethics of Santa Clarita citizens and strives to follow in their footsteps. By partnering with local organizations, we can help to make our community strong and more vibrant. The Paseo Club is proud to be a pillar of the Santa Clarita Valley community.

The Paseo Club provides club space and amenities to help host events for nonprofits or charities so they can raise funds to make the community a better place.  

Throughout the year, the Paseo Club hosts food drives, pop-up classes with donated proceeds, and fundraisers walk/runs.

The rapidly growing popularity of pickleball is a great asset for local organizations. Many nonprofits have teamed up with the Paseo Club to host pickleball tournaments with minimal stress and maximum fun. 

Nonprofits use the wonderful court spaces for members and nonmembers to participate in the fundraiser. Nonprofs can raise significant capital for their causes with raffles, donations, auctions, and more.

What organizations has the Paseo Club teamed up with?

The Paseo Club has partnered with several local organizations, including the Alzheimer’s Foundation, Be the Light, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). 

Below are three nonprofit organizations in the Santa Clarita Valley that have had great success teaming up with the Paseo Club.

The New Way was developed by a teacher when he noticed how many of his students were struggling with stable housing and adequate access to food. His mission is to support homeless students with food, clothes, and housing assistance.

They raised $12,000 toward building The Pantry, a place for people to come and get groceries and supplies.

Dink for Cause

Dink for Cause is committed to using pickleball tournaments to fundraise for important causes. Their last event with the Paseo Club was for Be The Match, an organization that grows databases for the use of bone marrow for those in need. They raised over $40K. 

The Michael Hoefflin Foundation 

The Michael Hoefflin Foundation is a nonprofit that helps families with children with cancer. Their full two-day tournament has grown each consecutive year. In 2023 it raised over $35,000 during the course of a weekend.
