PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – The Golf Relief and Assistance Fund was created by the PGA of America to help golf industry personnel affected directly by qualified natural disasters. Administered by the largest community foundation in the world, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, of Mountain View, California, the fund is available to aid those dealing with the devastating flooding in the Midwest.
The fund—launched by the PGA in 2017, with an initial contribution of $250,000—is designed to support both PGA Members and non-members who work in the industry. Since its inception, the Golf Relief and Assistance Fund has helped golf industry members affected by qualified natural disasters.
“The Golf Relief and Assistance Fund is a model that has shown how the golf industry helps one another in times of need,” said PGA President Suzy Whaley. “As these devastating floods affect America’s heartland, we turn to PGA Professionals to spread the word about the availability of this fund to anyone in the golf industry who needs assistance.”
