The Golfers’ Charitable Foundation provides financial support to local organizations that benefit children and youth seeking a rewarding education, social programs, and those encountering health issues.


The Golfers’ Charitable Foundation is an independent organization of volunteers from the Baltimore business community. Our focus is to provide financial support for children and youth seeking a rewarding education and activities they choose and those encountering health issues.

Each year, The Foundation donates proceeds from its core fundraiser, the Scramble for Kids Golf Tournament. Since 1967, The Foundation has contributed $3.8 million to area children’s and youth charities and organizations – impacting the lives of thousands of children.

Your tax-deductible donation will positively impact the youth of Baltimore. The Golfers’ Charitable Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, EIN 52-6074460. Donations (less the fair market value of any goods and services the donor receives) are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.


Board of Directors

The Foundation is governed by the Board of Trustees, volunteers from business and golf – who share their specific expertise with the Foundation.
