WWGA FOUNDATION

In 1971 this charitable trust was formed to receive and distribute funds to advance women in scholastic achievement and intercollegiate golf programs by:

- granting academic scholarships to worthy and deserving women students who also have an involvement in the sport of golf.  Skill or excellence in the sport is not a criterion.

- providing financial assistance to universities & colleges with inadequately funded women's golf programs.

There are no paid members on the Foundation Board.  Virtually all dollars contributed are distributed to colleges and universities in the form of individual scholarship payments or women's golf team grants.  WWGF individual scholarships are in the amount of $2,000 per year, renewable for four years.

The Women's Western Golf Foundation holds a Determination Letter from the Internal Revenue Service recognizing it as a tax-exempt charitable trust; consequently contributions to the Foundation are deductible for federal income tax purposes.

The Foundation is an outgrowth of the Women's Western Golf Association.  Its primary sources of income have been contributions by Association members, proceeds from golf clubs and groups participating in the annual Foundation Scholarship Day event, proceeds from the WWGA Tournaments, and individual donations from friends and benefactors.

The Women's Western Golf Foundation... also conducts an Annual Scholarship Day - this club competition - a one-day, 18 hole low net tournament - is played on the home course by women who made a contribution to the WWGA Scholarship Program.

The entire United States is divided into Sections and the best four low net scores from each club compete for prizes against other teams in their respective sections.  The team with the best low net total in its section will be declared the winner.  A similar event is held for 9-hole golfers.

More Information on Scholarship Day may be obtained from:
