The New England PGA Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, is committed to its mission of impacting lives through golf. We are dedicated to positively impacting the lives of veterans, youth and diverse populations.
Recently founded, the New England PGA Foundation, through PGA Reach, will continually work to promote the game and improve the lives of thousands of children, military veterans and their families, as well as diverse populations through golf each year. Although the NEPGA fosters competition, the New England PGA Charitable Foundation is designed to encourage fellowship, good sportsmanship, continued skill development, honesty, integrity and etiquette.
The New England PGA Foundation has three pillars: Youth, Military & Diversity.
Helping our Patriots Everywhere (HOPE) is a year round program designed to keep interested veterans playing golf, in order to embrace their mental, social, physical and emotional well-being. PGA REACH, the New England Section and PGA Professionals partner with local VA hospitals and military installations to initiate this program. The program includes a working partnership with physical therapists, introduction of the participant to the sport of golf, golf instruction, playing opportunities and social events. Using golf as an activity to assist them with their progress in rehab along with helping them to assimilate and mainstream with their families and into their communities and into life. Programs take place in local markets nationally and are fully funded for military and their families’ participation.
