Thank you for considering a memorial gift to the Indiana Golf Foundation. Donors typically make gifts in memory of a deceased family member, friend or co-worker. Each gift helps the Indiana Golf Foundation promote our mission to teach valuable life lessons to Indiana youth through the game of golf.
Memorial gifts are directed toward the Indiana Golf Foundation annual fund unless otherwise directed by the family of the deceased. Families also may choose to direct memorial funds to pay for Academy scholarships or First Tee program fees for economically disadvantaged youth. The exact use of funds received can be decided by the family at a later time.
Families may ask for memorial gifts through the obituary. Sample text might read, " In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the Indiana Golf Foundation, PO Box 516, Franklin, IN 46131”.
