The First Tee of Silicon Valley is growing and thriving because of generous support from individuals and organizations. Financial support helps us keep class fees affordable and meet the huge demand for our programs. Our positive youth development programs works. The young people we mentor behave better, get better grades, and are healthier than their peers. You can donate any amount below. However, individuals who donate $250 or more will become part of our Caddy Club.

We Need Your Help!
We need your generous financial support to continue shaping youth into high quality adults and to keep our classes affordable. More than 50% of our current class costs (>$250) are covered by contributions keeping class fees affordable. And more than 20% of our participants require full financial aid to even cover the $100 class fee. Your generosity provides opportunity and results.
While we will impact over 10,000 youth in 2015, we have much greater demand for our programs than we can currently address (Unfortunately, we have to turn many youth away). $800K is needed in donations to cover 2015 program costs. $1M is needed for program costs to meet the current, actual demand. By committing to give annually, you help us to ensure that proper funds will be available to budget and plan for our growth to serve many more children.
The First Tee of Silicon Valley expects to serve 1,200 unique participants in classes and 10,000 youth in outreach (e.g., DRIVE) in 2016. Those number are projected to reach 4,000 and 20,000, respectively, every year by 2020.
