Help us build character, teach life skills and wellness through the fun and engaging platform of golf. Your financial assistance and equipment donations ensure bright futures for Houston’s area youth.
First Tee – Greater Houston could not reach hundreds of thousands of young people and families each year without the 3,885 volunteer hours in 2019 by amazing mentor coaches like Dr. Swafford. Please take a few minutes to hear Dr. Swafford’s testimonial.
Help us reach our goals of teaching character, 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 Houston’s area youth. Now offering three different ways to donate: One Time Donations, Reoccurring Monthly Gifts and Round-up Gifts!
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 & 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 Houston, you can donate up to $100,000 without it being considered a taxable distribution.
Charles Schwab Challenge Grant
The Charles Schwab Challenge Grant is happening right now at First Tee — Greater Houston. Our chapter’s ability to receive this match will be tied directly to your support!
