The Southern California PGA Foundation’s Grants and Scholarships Program is tailored toward at-risk and underprivileged youth in the Southern California community. The SCPGA Foundation’s sole focus is to assist those in need through a variety of options focused on the game of golf. The life skills associated with the game are unmatched and the SCPGA Foundation views each activity and event as key contributions to a junior’s overall mental, physical, and social development.
