The Georgia PGA Foundation (the Foundation), a nonprofit charitable organization, was established with the mission of enhancing lives and improving the communities served by our Georgia Section through golf programming and fundraising, and in the process, growing the game throughout the region. As a PGA member, you should be familiar with the Foundation as a means to share our talents and ourselves in support of the future of the game. Here are a few details to help you understand the Foundation and its mission:
 

 

How and why was Georgia PGA Foundation created?

The Georgia PGA acquired ownership of the Georgia Junior Golf Foundation in the late summer of 2011, and re-branded the organization the Georgia PGA Foundation as a vehicle to grow the game. The Foundation was introduced to the membership at our Spring 2012 meeting.

               

How do we currently generate funding for our initiatives?
 

1. Georgia License Tag Program

Using our personalized Georgia PGA Golf Tag delivers revenue annually to the Foundation.

 

2. Birdies for Love

Since 2012, the McGladrey Classic and the Georgia PGA have teamed up with the Davis Love Foundation through the Birdies Fore Love initiative. Birdies Fore Love, presented by Nalley Buick-GMC, is a fun way to bring new donors to our Foundation. Donors pledge dollars for every birdie made at The McGladrey Classic; their donations go directly to the Georgia PGA Foundation.

 

3. Foundation Golf Tournaments

PGA Professionals host events at their facilities to support the Foundation. Can you?

 

4. The Georgia PGA Section Gala

Our section’s premier social function and auction bring charitable organizations, partners, golf associations and PGA members together to create awareness and deliver the funding needed to expand our reach.

 

5. Private Donations

The generosity of our friends in Georgia is greatly appreciated. These private donations and corporation gifts encourage and allow us to create initiatives that help us serve our communities and grow the game.

 

Who benefits from the Georgia PGA Foundation?

PGA members believe the act of sharing is extremely powerful, whether it involves your time, talent or a financial contribution. Giving back provides benefits exponentially. Collaborating on programs with charitable partners and other organizations affords us new opportunities to expand the game of golf. Initiatives with our corporate partners who benefit from our ability to deliver the game permit us to build our brand and increase our section revenues, allowing us to expand our member programming, including education, employment and golf events. The growth of the game is our mission, but the willingness to share the values of the game with others is a business practice we as golf professionals can all share and embrace. 

 

Let’s share our time and talent in support of our beloved game!  To learn more about how you can get involved in this important initiative, please contact Brian Albertson at bamulliganpga@gmail.com
