Who we are
The SCJGF, a 501 (c)3 tax-exempt organization, uses individual and corporate donations to conduct programs and activates for the youth of South Carolina. All fully tax-exempt donations from corporations and individuals help SCJGF swing towards our established goals.
By joining our Friends of Junior Golf Initiative, you have the option of choosing one of the following funds to designate your gift toward:
- SCJGF General Fund: Provides resources for the future of the SC Junior Golf Association and SC Junior Golf Foundation operating needs and other supported activities. Gifts to this fund are designated to assist in junior golf development programs, junior golf competitions, equipment for juniors, our SCJGA’s Little Legends golf program, SCJGA general operations and statewide junior golf programs like Hook-A-Kid on Golf, Fairway Outreach and The First Tee Facilities located around SC.
- PAR Fund: The Player Assistance Reserve Fund (or PAR Fund) provides junior specific players, who are less fortunate, with the resources needed to compete in local, regional and national level events. Today’s competitive players and their families face a tremendous financial burden. For those wishing to compete in events who may not have the resources available, the PAR Fund offers the ability to apply to the Foundation for financial assistance to help offset the immense costs. Your gift to this Fund could help a young person fulfill their dream of playing in a Junior Golf Champoinship!
- Scholarship Fund: Donations to the Scholarship Fund are used to directly support the college scholarships awarded by the SCJGF annually.
- Hootie & The Blowfish Junior Golf Series Fund: Gifts designated to support the Hootie & The Blowfish Junior Golf Series Fund used to support the 19 Chapters across South Carolina that place nearly 2,000 youth on the golf course each summer. The right opportunity can be a catalyst in the life of an individual. Your membership in the SCJGF provides opportunities to the youth of our State.
