Charles Schwab Challenge Grant

Make a difference today that can last a lifetime!

With the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations, we recently celebrated seven years of programming at the end of September. In seven years, we have served more than 2,000 kids and teens, also know as PLAYers, through First Tee Life Skills Experience program, and more than 7,500 young people have benefitted through our outreach programs at a variety of after-school locations in Orange, Tustin and Santa Ana.

With continued support, First Tee – Orange County will teach even more young people life skills and help them acquire core values through the game of golf. Enabling them to be successful on and off the golf course, and ultimately to achieve their fullest potential.

With participant fees only covering 10% of our program costs and more than 50% of our players on scholarship, we rely on the generosity of our community members to insure that our programs remain affordable and accessible to youth, ages 4-18, who have not previously been exposed to golf.

You can continue to make a difference today that can last a lifetime. Here are ways you can help:

  • $1,000 helps to underwrite one month of course fees, equipment, and healthy snacks for our players.
  • $500 underwrites one full year of golf and educational programming for one player in our program.
  • $120 underwrites one 9-week session of golf and educational programming for one player in our program.

Thank you for your support of the youth of First Tee – Orange County and for providing them with the tools and resources they need to be successful in life.
