As we close the books on a difficult year, please consider a donation to the AJGA Foundation. Your gift is 100% tax-deductible and allows us to fund three programs, critical to our success this season and as leaders in the golf industry:
The ACE Grant financial assistance program has helped junior golfers pursue their dreams since 2003. In the wake of COVID-19, the opportunity to earn a college scholarship will be more important than ever for members. Hear from families directly impacted by the pandemic and your support:
Using the Leadership Links platform, junior golfers have raised more than $3 million for charity since 2009.
Some of our members responded to the worldwide crisis with leadership and swift action:
- raising money for first responders and healthcare workers
- assembling PPE kits for use at events
- making masks
- creating care packages for hospitals
- using their talents to raise money for others impacted by the economic shutdown in the golf industry
Finally, the AJGA's industry-leading Internship program provides a critical training and development opportunity, empowering staff to operate a tournament behind the scenes in communications and operations. Thanks to incredible efforts of the staff and seven intern teams, 97 events were operated after a June restart.
As always, there were incredible performances and outstanding memories from the season. The December #RolexAwards evening celebrated stories of how we got through this year together.
Thank you for your support of the AJGA, its mission and our junior golfers.
We will support the next generation together.
