Since 1916, The PGA of America has served the golfing public working with golf course owners and golf manufacturers through its efforts to promote the game and make it accessible to everyone, everywhere. These efforts are carried out by the more than 28,000 men and women PGA Professionals who make The PGA of America the world's largest working sports organization.
The PGA Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) public philanthropic foundation, was created in 1954 as the charitable arm for The PGA of America. In keeping with the mission of The PGA of America, the foundation is dedicated to providing resources and the professional expertise to make golf accessible to all segments of every community.
In 2005, the PGA Foundation established the Legacy Society, a special designation for individuals who have made major gifts to the PGA Foundation. The Legacy Society is a significant part of the PGA Planned Giving Program.
The PGA Foundation's priority is to grow the game of golf while using the game to enhance the quality of life for all people. Directly associated with golf programs are core values such as honesty, integrity, respect, self-assurance, courtesy, and perseverance. Regardless of gender, age, social and economic background, or playing ability, every golfer experiences these values through their involvement in the game. These values are particularly important for golf programs conducted in under-served communities.
