Del has completely changed my life. He is one of the most charitable and helpful human beings I have ever met. From my junior year in high school, Del and the Perfect Game Foundation have helped guide my future career aspirations and education plans. Without him and the organization, I would not be in the position I am in now. Everyone deserves to have someone like Del in their lives.

As someone who is currently active in TPGF I am constantly impressed with Del. There are a countless individuals who work in sports business and there is no one who more a gentleman and professional than Del. He is always willing to help, take on silly questions and achieve the dreams of others. If I were to write this review a year from now I am sure that I would be astronomically satisfied.

As a college student, Del WIlber gave me an opportunity to help with the foundation on a volunteer basis during one Summer break. I learned a lot from my experience, and it made me very interested in sports business. Del is a great leader for this foundation that represents the great legacy of sports and his family.

Del is just an A+ individual. He has referred a number of interns to the organization---all of them have been professional, likable and a good match. Del is committed to assisting young (and the not so young) to achieving h/h professional goals. Keep up the great work.

Del Wilber is a great man. He was referred to me by a friend and although we had never met or communicated in the past, he offered his time, his experience, and his advice at no cost to me. Del was always available to chat or to lend a hand, and that's the way TPGF operates. They are a great foundation and I look forward to what the future has in store for them.

I have worked cosely and met many of the students helped by the TPGF. These students are passionate about moving forward and makinga difference. We have been fortunate to have a few students work within our organization. Del Wilber understands the brand promise we try to deliver and he provides students that he believes will deliver that brand promise for us. A great organization with great people involved.

Without people like Del Wilber and groups like TPGF I would not be on the career path that I am. Del spent the better part of a year mentoring and teaching me about the inner workings of the sports world. The program proved that even someone looking to make a career change can break in with hard work. Since "graduating" from TPGF the program has grown leaps and bounds and is a must use tool for college students looking to learn and get an edge on their competition. The relationships you gain within TPGF and the experts you are able to lean on are the best of the best.

TPGF helps young professionals pursue their dream of working in the sports profession. As the old adage goes, if you can find a job you love; you will never have to work a day in your life!

Del is a tireless leader who cares and supports all persons who he has the opportunity to meet.

Not only is TPGF exceptional, it is an example to the enormous sports industry that you need and should give back to the industry that gave you a career. Hats off and a salute to Del Wilber for taking his professional talents, experience and contacts to do his share in "saving the world" - one kid at a time. I hope we can get others to follow. And knowing Del, he will!

Del and the PGF have been active supporters of our Sport Sales Combine providing not only scholarships, but mentoring, helping with placement and also directing students on career paths including grad school. Years agoI worked for Del at Del Wilber + Associates - it is a pleasure to see that Del has made the move to the non-profit sector and is paying it forward and giving back.

Del Wilber has made an amazing impact on my life. When my husband and I moved to Washington D.C., Del went out of his way to not only understand our interests and goals, but ultimately helped change the trajectory of our lives by introducing us to a number of his friends and colleagues that provided much needed guidance and counsel. Del is not only a friend but a mentor. The work that Del is doing with TPGF is absolutely incredible. The foundation creates unbelievable opportunities and helps young people pursue their dreams. Del Wilber & TPGF is tireless in their commitment to help change lives and they both deserve recognition as a leader and as a non-profit.

First a word about Del and the The Perfect Game Foundation.

Del is an individual you only read about, until you have the good fortune to meet him. He embodies the philosophy of "pass it forward". He has mentored me and my company (INTENNIS.com) in so many valuable ways as he draws on his experiences and introductions to guide you through some of those same trials.

We also experienced first hand his intern program, when three young men aided us in further developing our reach into various segments in the world of tennis.

Meeting and getting to know Del and TPGF has been life changing. You cannot work beside Del for very long, before you are ready and willing to reach out to offer a helping hand to an individual (stranger or friend) or a company.

I am honored to know Del and pleased to work with him.

Absolutely love working with Del and his family on this wonderful cause. They have given a voice to an important community with rich history in building collaboration and friendship. We've all experienced the glow after a baseball game or the morning after a win against the rival football team. In a way, we are all in debt to those that seek out a career in sports. I'm thankful Del and team are finding a way to provide support to these young professionals.

The Perfect Game Foundation is truly a nonprofit run with a heart.

I am truly excited to have been a part of the foundation from the beginning and can't wait to see what they are able to do in the next few years.

As a Founding Advisor for The Perfect Game Foundation, I was hopeful that the organization would be able to stand, then walk, then run, over a significant span of time, after it was launched. What I've seen has been beyond my greatest expectations, and to know that TPGF is positively impacting so many lives and careers is a "home run". Del has poured an enormous amount of time and energy into TPGF, and as Advisors the rest of us are honored to be associated.
