Creating experiences that transform since 1984

Our History

Truett & Jeannette Cathy

WinShape Foundation is a Christian non-profit organization. WinShape was established in 1984 by S. Truett Cathy and his wife, Jeannette, as a way to invest in college students and shape winners—thus, the name “WinShape.” Over time, the organization added other ministries to its portfolio to serve more demographics—children, marriages, work teams, foster families and more.

Our Ministry Today

In keeping with Truett’s legacy, WinShape seeks to glorify God by creating transformative experiences that move people closer to Christ and the life he intended for us—in every stage of life. Today we do this through five core ministries: WinShape Camps, WinShape College Program, WinShape Homes, WinShape Marriage, and WinShape Teams.

WinShape continues its work through the generosity of the Cathy family and a strong commitment to keep Christ at the center of everything we do. While our home base is in Rome, Georgia—host to many of our programmatic experiences—WinShape continues to grow its presence across the country and around the world.
