Featured Partner

The USGA is a Founding Partner and Trustee of First Tee, supporting our mission through grants, advocacy and activations since 1997. In 2021, after more than 20 years of partnership, they established the USGA IDEA Grant program. Since its inception, 101 grants have been distributed to 49 chapters across 32 states, helping connect more diverse young people to the game and to First Tee’s character-empowering programs.  


During the 2024 U.S. Open, First Tee was represented in a variety of ways thanks to the support from the USGA. The First Tee Game Changers Pavilion was filled with engaging, family-friendly activities such as a coloring wall, putting plinko, and a target game.  


Since our inception, Trustees have provided resources that allow First Tee to successfully advance our mission. Trustees make a significant impact on our ability to provide strategic direction to our growing network of 150 chapters, as well as curriculum enhancements, technology innovations, ongoing research, continuing adult education for coaches and chapter leaders, expanding diversity and inclusion initiatives, and college scholarships. First Tee Trustees are made up of individuals, corporations and foundations that pledge $1 million or more to our mission. Trustees can direct a portion of their gift to a local chapter(s) of their choice.
