The Southern California PGA Foundation’s mission is to provide all those who might benefit, especially youth from all communities, with opportunities to acquire sustainable life skills and values obtained through the game of golf.
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. This program is open to all Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and Veterans. This program is provided at no cost to the Veteran. Veterans can range from World War II era to post- 9/11 era Veterans to those newly separated from the military. PGA HOPE also introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.
The Southern California PGA Foundation created ClubsForeYouth® as a means to provide local student-athletes, specifically female youth, with adequate resources needed to experience important recreational opportunities at high schools throughout Southern California.
The Southern California PGA Foundation’s Grants and Scholarships Program is tailored toward at-risk and underprivileged youth in the Southern California community. The SCPGA Foundation’s sole focus is to assist those in need through a variety of options focused on the game of golf. The life skills associated with the game are unmatched and the SCPGA Foundation views each activity and event as key contributions to a junior’s overall mental, physical, and social development.
More than a pillar, community and accessibility is the SCPGA Foundation’s guiding principle, whether, providing equipment, competitive playing opportunities, or working with our Southern California Golf community partners to expand access for players from all backgrounds.
The Southern California PGA Junior Tour’s mission is to create learning and playing opportunities for individuals of all ages and skill levels throughout Southern California. We aim to utilize golf as a vehicle to instill values such as integrity, honor, and patience. The SCPGA Junior Tour strives to foster and develop these values that will positively impact our member’s character on and off the golf course.
The Southern California PGA Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and operates as a public foundation.
