WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
The Callaway Golf Company Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that has donated more than $8 million to charities, primarily through donations from Callaway Golf Company and its late Founder, Ely Callaway.
The Callaway Golf Company Foundation strives to create healthy communities where our stakeholders live and work. Our focus is to support programs that improve lives and contribute to communities on a select basis. The Foundation also serves as a catalyst for our employees to become involved in and contribute to their communities.
The Callaway Golf Company Foundation has an excellent track record of identifying worthwhile causes and groups that fit its goals. It does not accept unsolicited requests for grants.
Pro Kids Golf Academy and Learning Center
Pro Kids Golf Academy and Learning Center (PKGA) was founded in 1994 with the mission to positively impact the lives of inner-city youth by providing programs that promote education, character development, life-skills, and values through the game of golf. The Foundation is currently supporting the development of a North County learning center in Oceanside, CA. Once open, Pro Kids will provide golf and life skills instruction to kid’s ages 7-17. Programming and registration will begin once the clubhouse is built (projected September/October 2012).
The Southern California Golf Foundation
The Callaway Golf Company Foundation is a proud supporter of The Southern California Golf Association Youth On Course program. With affordable access to golf, the game will continue to grow, but more importantly, youth will have the opportunity to experience the life skills that it teaches on a more frequent basis.
Challenged Athletes, Inc.
The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) is a unique organization that recognizes the athletic greatness inherent in all people with physical challenges and supports their athletic endeavors by providing grants for training, competition and equipment needs.
Callaway Golf Foundation Women's Cancer Initiative
The Callaway Golf Company Foundation was proud to be a supporter of the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Programs. The Callaway Golf Foundation Women's Cancer Initiative (CGFWCI) donated a total of $2 million and teamed up with four leading cancer facilities to fast-track breakthrough ovarian cancer tests and treatments.
Employee Matching Gift Program
The Callaway Golf Employee Matching Gift Program supports employees and directors in their charitable giving. The Callaway Golf Company Foundation gives back to the community by matching individual employee gifts made to qualified nonprofit organizations with a matching Foundation gift.
