Ways to Give

Ways to Give
Pro Kids promotes education, character development, life-skills, and values through the game of golf. Pro Kids membership is free to children who live in our neighborhood. It is also free for children who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program at their school. Pro Kids relies on the generosity of the community to make these programs successful and to enhance the lives of inner-city youth. Every gift, large or small, makes a difference.

There are many ways you can help!
