In Honor & In Memoriam Donations

First Tee – Connecticut gratefully accepts donations in honor of or in memory of an individual. We always send acknowledgments to the individual or their family with the donor’s name and mailing address.

One of the most touching ways that the community supports First Tee – Connecticut is by allowing us to share in the legacy of a loved one who has recently passed away. This may be an individual who loved the game of golf or loved supporting young people.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Mr./Mrs. Smith’s memory to First Tee – Connecticut, a youth development organization that enables young people to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. First Tee – Connecticut; 55 Golf Club Road, Cromwell, CT 06416 or https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/firstteeconnecticut.

Complex Assets

When giving back to support a favorite charity, are you using the right assets to make the greatest impact? While cash could fund your charitable giving, non-publicly traded or complex assets in your portfolio often provide a more tax-efficient and impactful way to support your favorite causes. Identifying and contributing your highly appreciated assets to a charity with a donor-advised fund program through Charles Schwab, Fidelity Charitable, Vanguard, or others will empower you to make more of a difference.

Please contact Mark Moriarty at (860) 882-1660 if you would like to learn more about First Tee – Connecticut’s Gift Acceptance Policy, which includes acceptance of most complex assets directly or in partnership with a third-party (Donor Advised Fund).
