ABOUT: In May of 2021, the golf industry collaborated to introduce a new Grassroots Grants Program (GGP) designed to increase participation among those who are underrepresented in the sport. The GGP was developed by the Youth & Adult Player Development Work Group that was formed as part of the Make Golf Your Thing industry-wide diversity, equity, and inclusion movement.

Facilitated through the American Golf Industry Coalition (a division of the World Golf Foundation), $1.8 million has been awarded to 155 organizations since May 2021.

PURPOSE & FUNDING PRIORITIES: This Grassroots Grant Program supports charitable organizations that are dedicated to increasing golf participation among those who are underrepresented in the sport, such as: Black, Latinx, Asian, Indigenous, women, members of the LBGTQ+ community, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.

Priority will be given to organizations that are not receiving significant support from leading golf organizations. This program does not support event sponsorship or brick and mortar requests.
