PGA of America Golf Relief and Assistance Fund
Available to Aid Disaster Victims Industrywide

Program Aid Available for Golf Industry Personnel Impacted
by Recent Natural Disasters including: Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey,
the California Wildfires and Future Qualified Disasters

 

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Nov. 15, 2017) – In response to the recent series of tragic weather events, the PGA of America has announced the formation of the Golf Relief and Assistance Fund, which will help provide relief to individuals in the golf industry who have suffered as a result of a current or future qualified disaster.

This program is available to support golf industry personnel impacted by recent natural disasters including: Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey, the California Wildfires and qualified disasters that may arise going forward.

The Golf Relief and Assistance Fund was created so the PGA of America and other industry participants can support PGA Members and other golf industry personnel in qualified disaster situations. The PGA launched this fund with a contribution of $250,000. The fund will be administered by the largest community foundation in the world, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, of Mountain View, California. 

“We view the Golf Relief and Assistance Fund as a model of how the PGA Member can help show the positive role the PGA plays in the golf industry,” said PGA President Paul Levy. “We look to our Members to help spread the word about the availability of this fund to their fellow PGA Members and to others in golf industry communities who may be in need.”

To either make a tax-deductible contribution to the Golf Relief and Assistance Fund or to apply for assistance, please visit GolfReliefFund.org.
