Donor Spotlight: Bruce & Christy Lincoln

Bruce is a proud volleyball dad, entrepreneur, former corporate officer, savvy nonprofit volunteer and First Point Volleyball Foundation’s board director and treasurer. Bruce and his wife Christy are very proud to have raised four wonderful children, three of whom – Grace, Adam and Andrew – play volleyball. Andrew was 2015 Arizona player of the year and now plays for the BYU men’s volleyball team. In their words, Bruce and Christy decided to give $75,000 to First Point Volleyball Foundation because, “we wanted to provide opportunities for more boys around the country to enjoy this incredible sport. We love the game and enthusiastically support John Speraw’s vision of building the talent pipeline for more gold medals for Team USA.”

When Bruce isn’t attending volleyball matches he often is in nonprofit board meetings. In addition to serving on the board of First Point Volleyball Foundation, he also serves as President of The Camil Van Hulse Foundation and as a director of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. He can also be found at the beach surfing or spearfishing. Bruce is President of Innervizion Surf Company — a start-up that designs and manufactures transparent surf boards and paddle boards. He enjoys his weekends watching Andrew play in Provo, Grace play in beach tournaments, or boating from San Diego over to Catalina Island. During the week, Bruce and Christy live in Phoenix.
