Annual Fund

Has golf changed your life? Now is your chance to help create a lasting legacy and your own imprint on the game’s history.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the mission of the World Golf Hall of Fame is to preserve and honor the history of the game of golf and the legacies of those who have made it great. Supported by all of the world’s leading golf organizations, the Hall of Fame combines historic artifacts and personal memorabilia with interactive exhibits to tell the stories of our members and the history of the game.

The Museum has over 35,000 square feet of exhibit space with over 4,000 items on display throughout, many of which are the personal items of Hall of Fame members like Jack Nicklaus, Nancy Lopez, Arnold Palmer and many others.  New displays are added during the Induction Ceremony which celebrates the recently added members.

Donations help support the organization’s most pressing needs and ongoing mission programs. Unrestricted cash donations (which can be made in any amount) are applied to our Annual Fund.

The most common forms of gifts and pledges are outright gifts of cash and securities, but there are other types of assets that may be donated, as well as planned giving options that may have favorable financial and tax benefits.

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees or trustees. Check with your company for more information on its matching gift program.
