I AM a Golfer Foundation
The I AM a Golfer Foundation (IAMGF) was established in 2018 as a 501(3)(c) tax exempt organization. Its mission is to be a catalyst for community renewal and transformation in South Dallas. This will accomplished by creating life changing opportunities for South Dallas youth through golf and golf related programs at Cedar Crest Golf Course. These programs focus on: Golf Instruction; Jobs and Job Training; and Scholarships.
I AM a Golfer Foundation Pillars
The well-known health, social and relational benefits of golf as a lifelong sport will be extended to those without the economic means to learn the game. In addition, this initiative will allow area high school team members to have access to professional instruction at no cost. This will help those who have already shown interest in golf but who often become disillusioned when they go into competition and thus do not continue in the sport.
Jobs and Job Training
This pillar will fund jobs and job training for both college and high school students from the area. For college students, internships will include leadership and general business skill training as well as exposure to operations, customer service, marketing, and in some cases, golf instruction best practices. High school jobs will be in golf operation and on the course.
This pillar will provide scholarships to DISD graduates with high academic achievement who played golf in high school. Some scholarship money will also be available to Interns who have met all performance standards established by the Foundation.
