Charity of the week: The LPGA Foundation

The LPGA Foundation has worked for more than two decades to introduce young women to the game of golf.

The LPGA Foundation (LPGAFoundation.org) has worked for more than two decades to introduce young women to the game of golf. More than 40 percent of girls drop out of sports programs of all kinds by the age of 14. To counteract that trend, every year the Ladies Professional Golf Association teaches some 20,000 girls between the ages of 7 and 17 how to play the game at its 250 junior golf programs across the country. Its mission is to teach young women the value of healthy competition, and to empower them with the self-confidence that they need to succeed in school and later in life. The LPGA also awards scholarships to students who have shown promise in the classroom and on the green.

Each charity we feature has earned a four-star overall rating from Charity Navigator, which rates not-for-profit organizations on the strength of their finances, their control of administrative and fundraising expenses, and the transparency of their operations. Four stars is the group’s highest rating.
