5 Ways to Give to Golf on Giving Tuesday
From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, and now finally, it is Giving Tuesday.
There are obviously plenty of ways to give around the state, including ways to give back to the game of golf in Rhode Island.
From Button Hole to The Burke Fund, they have continued to teach, award scholarships and raise money.
On this Giving Tuesday, consider a donation to any of these organizations:
The Burke Fund
Formally recognized as the John P. Burke Memorial Fund, it provides financial aid to qualified students to assist them in obtaining a college education.
More familiar to golfers as the “Burke Fund”, it is one of the oldest golf scholarship programs in the country.
This year, the Burke Fund has awarded over thousands of dollars to scholars.
Button Hole is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public golf facility in Providence that welcomes people of all abilities.
It consists of a short nine hole course, as well as, a driving range and putting greens.
High School Golf Teams
Back in September, GolfNewsRI told you about the high school golf team at St. Raphael Academy seeking donations.
They received incredible support in that endeavor, as they look to build their team back up.
St. Rays might still be looking for equipment, but so might other high schools in the area.
Doesn’t hurt to give them a call and find out.
Special Olympics Rhode Island
Special Olympics Rhode Island is one of the state’s most dynamic programs, providing over 1,600 year-round sports training and athletic competition opportunities to more than 4,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Special Olympics Rhode Island hosts over 40 statewide tournaments and competitions each year in 20 official and demonstration sports.
They host a number of golf tournaments every year.
First Tee Massachusetts
The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people.
Through after school and in school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf.
And it’s making a difference.
