Caddy Club Members Matter

Categories: 2018, Newsletter, November

There is still time to be part of the 2018 Caddy Club! It has been a challenging year to raise money for our youth development non-profit as much of the local giving has been diverted to supporting disaster relief and homelessness. The First Tee of Silicon Valley is a safe haven that provides structure, direction and mentorship to many children who never dreamed of working on core values and life goals through golf. We are turning back to golf enthusiasts like you that understand the impact of our specialized program to ask for help.

We appreciate 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. More than 25% of our participants which are on free/reduced school lunch program require financial aid to even cover the $160 class fee. Your generosity provides opportunity and results.

If you have already received your 2018 bag tag and magnet as a Caddy Club member, please consider a year-end gift to help us reach our $250,000 goal.

If you are not yet a member of our Caddy Club for this year, please visit our website to learn more about our multiple levels of Caddy Club Annual Giving (starting at $250) and see the impact you can have by underwriting a participant(s) as they progress through the 5 levels of certification.

Thank you for realizing our program is a game changer for participants – they are behaving better, are getting better grades and are healthier on the golf course, in the classroom and in our local community. The First Tee of Silicon Valley is a self-sustaining, local chapter celebrating its 13th year of offering affordable access to over 65,000 youth.

Please donate to help us meet our goal of raising $250,000 by year-end.
