The Illinois PGA Foundation celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021 and has launched a $1,000,000 capital campaign that will focus on securing necessary funding to create a financial foundation that will support current and new programming well into the future.
The Foundation has focused its community efforts on promoting the goodwill and growth of the game with an emphasis on activities that benefit youth. It manages programs such as PGA Jr. League, the Drive, Chip and Putt competition, GolfWorks Illinois and PGA HOPE as well as Birdies for Charity, college scholarship programs and the Support Youth Golf license plate program. A new Junior Tour will be launched in 2021 which will allow junior golfers to experience tournament play at top facilities throughout the Chicagoland area.
In addition to this programming, the Foundation is working together with the Illinois PGA Section to purchase the former Western Golf Association (WGA) building in Golf, Illinois to become its first-ever headquarters and allow the organizations to better serve the community and its membership. The capital campaign will help secure funding for the new headquarters purchase and ensuing renovations.
We invite you to partner with us on this capital campaign to elevate the Illinois PGA Foundation by reaching our goal of raising $1,000,000.
