The NCPGA Foundation issues grants, up to $1,250, to programs that meet our mission statement and make a positive difference and impact for good in our communities. The grant should support direct program needs and not endowment funds. The application must be submitted by an NCPGA Class A Member in good standing.
To be considered, a grant request must be for a golf program that serves: Veterans, Junior golfers, those in underserved communities, women, minorities, or disabled golfers.
In evaluating the applications, the NCPGA Foundation Fund Giving Committee will consider the following:
- Is the program focused and able to provide a direct impact to improve the lives of others?
- Does the program have clearly defined goals, action plans, and measurable outcomes?
- Will the grant award be used efficiently? How little of the financial support will be used for overhead costs, and how much will be used for direct program needs?
- Has the applicant ever contributed to the NCPGA Foundation’s fundraising efforts?
- Does the grant impact player development (Golf 2.0/Growth of the Game)?
Support will not be granted for:
- Political causes
- Programs or organizations that unfairly discriminate against people because of their gender, race, creed, national origin, age, disability or ethnicity
- Supporting any non-program related costs
- Paying for green fees or cart fees other than program related
Grant Application Process
