Grant Making Philosophy
The Florida Junior Golf Council (FJGC) provides grants to junior golf programs in the State of Florida. This grant program is designed to assist organizations that introduce young people to golf, through instruction and competition, teach the values and Rules of Golf, stress integrity, courtesy, self-discipline and other life skills. Additionally, the grant program assists junior golf organizations that serve economically disadvantaged youth, children with special needs and the general population.
- Grant applications will be more favorably viewed when they come from existing junior golf programs with a history of assisting junior golfers.
- Start-up organizations seeking large grants in hopes of initiating new and untested programs will not be viewed as favorably.
- Programs should also demonstrate a reasonable level of self-sufficiency and provide a long-term plan for financial support.
