From the Executive Director: A New Website and Grant Update

New WebsiteWe are excited to debut our newly redesigned website this month. If you haven’t checked it out, visit www.accessgolf.org.  We hope you will find the new website easier to use and we will be adding items as we progress through the rest of this year.

We are currently in discussions with the United States Golf Association (USGA) about making changes to the our Grant Program.  The grant program is on hold until we finalize those discussions.

One of the important factors and success of the grant program has been the support provided to grassroots programs serving individuals with disabilities.  Many of those programs need outside support to be able to provide equipment, instruction and access to the game for their participants.  While the numbers of participants don’t reflect large numbers per program, the impact that our game and involvement of these individuals to what ever level their ability allows is critical and does make a positive impact on the live of those served.

Since 2010, when the National Alliance took over administration of the grant program (funded by the USGA), we have provided more than $900,000 in grants to these programs.  Programs ranging from The First Tee of Greater Charleston to Golf for All to Pomeroy Recreation and Rehab (to mention a few), all have seen remarkable progress and impact on the individuals served.

We remain committed to serving these grassroots programs and creating opportunities for all. You can support our efforts by donating whatever level of support you can.  Visit www.accessgolf.org to donate online. Thank you in advance for your support.

Until next month, “Choose to Include”!

Stephen Jubb, PGA

Executive Director
