A MESSAGE FROM OUR LEADERSHIP 2019 has been a tremendous year for the Northern California PGA Foundation, having now served over 1,000 Veterans through PGA HOPE, awarding our first Chevron Langley Veteran Scholarship, announcing Keena Turner, 49ers Legend as our PGA HOPE Ambassador and hosting the 2nd Annual PGA HOPE Rally Scramble at Green Valley Country Club on Veterans Day. Every one of the over 1,000 Veterans we’ve served have their own unique stories of struggles and how PGA HOPE has helped them in their process of healing. It’s through your generosity that we have been able to impact – and in some cases save lives. As you will read in this report, our financial strength and breadth of programming continues to grow. The NCPGA Foundation participates in Guidestar, the world’s largest source of information on nonprofit organizations, where we were awarded the Silver Seal of Transparency. As we look toward the future, we are excited to expand our impact in the communities that we serve through our three-fold mission: To serve Veterans - their health and their families, to provide resources to PGA members serving their communities in Northern California and Northwestern Nevada and to grow the game of golf. We are inspired every day by the words of gratitude received from the Veterans we serve, from the PGA Professionals who provide life-changing experiences through the game of golf and from you – our community of supporters. Sincerely,

Nancy Maul Executive Director Northern California PGA Foundation

“We are inspired every day by the words of gratitude received from our Veterans.”

PGA HOPE - HEALING AND BUILDING COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Golf as Therapy – A Moment in Time Standing over a golf ball, thinking about how to swing the club, move the ball forward – it’s a moment in time where our Veterans can’t be thinking about the ‘bad stuff,’ the memories that haunt them. It’s how PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) uses golf to help heal and

build a community of support. At no cost to our Veterans, PGA HOPE provides six weeks of adaptive golf instruction, followed by a graduation and ongoing playing opportunities.

“PGA HOPE is the ONLY sports program endorsed by the Department of Veteran Affairs, which allows VA clinicians and therapists to prescribe PGA HOPE as a healing therapy.”
