In a Nutshell

Donations help to provide equipment to implement a golf outreach program at Northern Nevada schools

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to The First Tee of Northern Nevada. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: High Dropout Rate in Washoe County

In the Washoe County School District, 37% of students failed to graduate in 2010, according to district data published by KNPB, the local public-television station. Positive programming starting in the early grades can help keep children engaged and motivated, contributing to their academic success in the long term.

The Campaign: Implementing Golf Program at a Local School

If this Grassroots campaign raises $210, then The First Tee of Northern Nevada can purchase the Starting New at Golf (SNAG) equipment necessary to implement its in-school outreach program at Northern Nevada schools. The program, which is active in more than 4,800 schools across the country, introduces youth to golf and life-skills concepts and engages students in physical-fitness activities. Each additional $210 raised will be used to purchase SNAG equipment and implement the program at another area school.
