We can make every gift go further, reach more kids and teens in our community, and make a bigger impact than ever before thanks to the Charles Schwab Challenge Grant.

From now through 2026, this matching grant will help our chapter deliver the life-changing impact of our program to kids from all walks of life. We will be able to expand our reach like never before and connect with kids and families in new and innovative ways. And we will be able to support the next great generation of mentors and leaders.

Your donation will help us make a bigger impact in our community, reaching more kids and teens like Cameron Ledford.

“I’ve gotten to a point where I don’t know where I am going but I know that I’ve done more than I ever thought I could do.”

“Look, let’s build on the things that you can do.  Let’s not worry about failures and only worry about successes.”

Coach Lindsey Hansen, PGA

“Confidence is huge.  It is the biggest obstacle in our son’s life.”
