Adopt a School Week May 28 to June 1
Adopt a School Week is Golf Canada’s junior golf grassroots initiative to drive interest and fundraising efforts around the Golf in Schools program.
In 2017, 266 new schools were adopted, introducing golf to an average of 120 students per school. Since launching in 2009, the program — developed by PHE Canada in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada — is currently in over 3,500 elementary, intermediate and high schools with more than 420,000 students participating from coast-to-coast.
Adopt a School Week is scheduled for the week of May 28 to June 1, 2018. Canadian golfers along with industry partners can participate in this national campaign by adopting a school in their community leading up to or during Adopt a School Week and share online or through social media using #GolfinSchools.
For the first 30 adoptions, any golf facility, PGA of Canada professional or individual who “adopts” a school into the Golf in Schools program from May 28 to June 1 will see their adoption matched with a school of their choice. This matching grant is possible due to Golf Canada’s partnership with the Canadian Seniors Golf Association (CSGA).
Donations can also be made in-store at local Golf Town locations across Canada during Adopt a School Week.
Every student should experience the wonders of golf. With each school adoption, clubs can help make this vision a reality. By adopting a school, clubs will donate the full program kit which includes age-appropriate golf clubs and a teacher-friendly learning resource.
ELEMENTARY – $475
INTERMEDIATE – $635
HIGH SCHOOL – $795
Tax receipts will be issued following each adoption.
