Through the generosity of Charles Schwab, The First Tee of Fort Worth has a unique opportunity to increase our current reach of over 45,000 local children and youth annually. The Charles Schwab Challenge Grant provides an opportunity for our chapter to receive $1.25 million in additional funding over the next three years. To receive these funds, we need to increase our fundraising by $140,000 each year over each previous year’s total. The additional $140,000 raised each year is matched by Charles Schwab 3:1 and will have an overall impact to our chapter of over $1.6 million. These funds will allow us to increase our already impactful programs by providing financial security for the organization, capital projects and improvements to our facilities as well as expansion of our programs.

As of December 11th, we have met our previous years fundraising goal so now, every dollar raised through December 31st will be matched 3x’s!


(As of December 11, 2019)


“Charles Schwab’s commitment to First Tee in Texas will have a significant impact on our chapters and their ability to reach young people for years to come,” said First Tee President Greg McLaughlin. “This support will allow us to expand our reach and impact, engaging young people in programs that will yield tangible academic and social benefits. We are incredibly grateful for the support.”


The human impact that these funds will have within our community will be tremendous. Through our already successful model of removing all barriers of accessibility to our programs, we can reach more youth within the community, reach them where they are and have a greater impact on their lives. As mentioned above, we currently serve over 45,000 children and youth within our five-county service area that includes Tarrant, Johnson, Parker, Wise Counties as well as a portion of Denton County.

The skills people learn when they are young can have incredibly powerful long-term consequences and benefits. That’s why The First Tee of Fort Worth is dedicated to shaping the lives of all young people to enable them to fulfill their potential and enrich our communities.

You can help us build on our success and increase our community impact in one of these ways.
