Grant Program

Grant Program Overview

PGA REACH New England is excited to continue the NEPGA Professional Grant Program for 2023, which is available to all New England PGA Professionals.

NEPGA Professionals who offer, or would like to offer programs that align with our Three Pillars of Impact: Diversity & Inclusion / Military Community / Youth Development, are eligible for financial support. Programs may be fully or partially funded, up to $2,500 each, depending on Foundation Committee approval.

The Foundation Committee, comprised of NEPGA Professionals, will review all submitted grant requests. The committee conducts initial reviews and determines if all information required is provided, the committee may meet with an applicant if needed. The committee then determines the benefits of each grant request and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors, which will make the final decision.

Consideration will be given to New England PGA Professionals based on:

  • The degree of potential benefit to the golf community
  • The span of communities the project will reach
  • Program Examples (Scholarships for Junior Golf Camps, Free or reduced Instruction Fees for Veterans, patrons with Diverse backgrounds, Adaptive or other Golf Equipment)

New England PGA Professionals who submit an application and are approved by the Committee, are eligible to receive grant funding up to $2,500 per year. Programs may be supported by the Committee a maximum of two occurrences.
