GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund
In 2006, in reaction to Hurricane Katrina, the association established the GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund to assist GCSAA members who suffered personal loss. The fund has continued to be a resource for members who face tragedy caused by natural disasters.
Those who are affected and may be eligible for financial assistance and resources from the fund can contact 800-472-7878 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations made to the fund are an opportunity for those in the golf industry to directly assist their peers. The fund is administered through GCSAA's philanthropic organization, the Environmental Institute for Golf. The EIFG is a 501(c)3 organization and gifts are tax-deductible. Your tax adviser can provide you with information specific to your gift. Be assured that 100 percent of your donation to the Disaster Relief Fund goes to impacted members.

Whether from hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding or wildfires, GCSAA and the Environmental Institute for Golf have established a relief effort for victims. This effort will focus on providing support directly to the GCSAA members who suffer personal loss due to disasters. GCSAA's deepest thoughts and prayers go out to those who lives are affected by such tragedies.
GCSAA will provide financial assistance up to $2,000 to members who contact the association (via phone or email) and whose daily lives are altered by the effects of the natural disaster and meet any of the following criteria:
- Have had to relocate/evacuate (whether they are staying with family, friends or in a motel) from their homes.
- Remain in their homes, but lose basic necessities such as electricity, water, etc. which lead to unexpected financial burden.
If you are a member who has been personally impacted, please call 800-472-7878 or email email@example.com.
