Ways to Give
Your gift will help a young person build character and learn-life enhancing values so that they may succeed on the golf course, at school and at home. You can make a difference by investing in our community's future today. A donation of time, talent or treasure will make a large impact in the lives of New Orleans' youth!
Donations and Sponsorship
Help us reach our goals of teaching valuable life skills and wellness through the fun and engaging platform of golf through your financial assistance. Your contribution goes a long way to ensuring the bright futures of New Orleans’ youth. Now offering three different ways to donate: One Time Donations, Recurring Gifts and Sponsorship Packages!
First Tee accepts gifts in memory or in honor of anyone you want to designate. Simply select the first box “I’d like to give in honor/memory” then, a pop up box allows you to select a tribute of “In Honor” or “In Memory” so we can let the family or honorary person know of your gift. This is a great way to remember people or give a gift for those hard to shop for.
In addition to our regular programming for kids, we also have special events throughout the year in which we invite the community to come out and support First Tee and our fundraising efforts.
Stocks, Securities, and Bequests
We accept Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) gifts of stocks and IRA contributions. If you are age 70½ or older and make a contribution directly from your traditional IRA to a qualified charity like The First Tee of Greater New Orleans, you can donate up to $100,000 without it being considered a taxable distribution.
Charles Schwab Challenge Grant
The Charles Schwab Challenge Grant is a yearly grant opportunity for First Tee – Greater New Orleans. Our chapter’s ability to receive this match will be tied directly to your support!
Gifts-In-Kind and used golf equipment donations are a great way to support your support for young golf enthusiasts. Each gift directly affects the quality and consistency of programming. First Tee – Greater New Orleans appreciates and accepts golf equipment donations.
