Through these generous donations, the Foundation has:

  • funded golf equipment for the PGA REACH Philadelphia 2021 Diversity Scholarship Recipients

  • granted funds for the beautification of the wildlife habitat environment along the walking path around the Philadelphia Cricket Club’s St. Martins golf course 

  • established partnerships with the Chestnut Hill Conservancy and the Philadelphia Cricket Club’s History Committee to create a walking history tour along that path


Future projects include creating an archive of the Club’s history, providing equipment for amateur athletes in need, creating a program for the beautification and stabilization of Lorraine Run and other environmental entities, and supporting the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship to be held at the Club in 2024.


We are forever grateful to our donors. Thank you all!
