Support Tom Morton, President of the Morton Golf Foundation, as he fundraises for the Morton Golf Foundation during the Villara/DCA Capital Cup this September 25, 26 and 27, 2020.
The owners of Morton Golf LLC have a long term lease to manage and operate the City of Sacramento Municipal Golf Courses. In 2008, the owners of Morton Golf LLC decided as part of their community outreach to create a 501c3 charitable entity to financially help underserved golf organizations that are in need as well as programs for the disabled and youth within the Sacramento Region.
In 2010, the Morton Golf Foundation (MGF) was born. The initial vision of the organization was to research and help supplement needy programs within the Sacramento Region that open up the game of golf to people from all walks of life. It didn’t take long to learn there were several small groups in the region that not only introduced golf to different special interest groups but also used golf to build character and life-long relationships. The Morton Golf Foundation has supported many deserving programs over the years including Angels for Hearts, Center for Fathers and Families, Latino Jr. Golf Programs, LPGA Amateur Golf Association, NCGA Foundation/Youth on Course, Northern California Minority Jr. Golf Scholarship Association, Inc., NCPGA Foundation/PGA HOPE, Rocklin Little Thunder Jr. Golf Programs, Sacramento Golf Council, Society for the Blind, Special Olympics of Northern California/CA Eagles Golf Programs, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, The First Tee of Greater Sacramento, Veterans’ Golf Program and has also provided College Scholarships as well as financial support to local youth golfers that are in need. Funds come from local donations, memorials, and special events.
In 2020, the Morton Golf Foundation had to cancel its largest fundraising event, Golf and Guitars which raises over $100,000 annually. MGF is now reaching out to the golfing community to ask for your support! Tom Morton, President of the Morton Golf Foundation, invites you to contribute to his GoFundMe account that has been set up to help recover some charity dollars. The winning team of the Villara/DCA Capital Cup in September 2020 will be playing for a share of the $100,000 Grand Prize and for every $5,000 MGF raises in advance, Tom earns a “mulligan” which will help improve his chances of winning!
Here’s a letter from Tom:
Hello Morton Golf Foundation Supporter!
As you may know, I am President of the Morton Golf Foundation and like so many charities we have had to cancel our most important fundraising activities providing key funding for us to enhance and improve the Sacramento community through the wonderful game of golf.
Now, more than ever, local non-profits are struggling not only to serve our communities, but to just maintain operations. Luckily, I have been given an incredible opportunity to help make up some of this loss by competing in the Villara/DCA Capital Cup, a golf tournament among fellow Sacramento business leaders to raise funds for local charities and non-profits. I am playing for and supporting the Morton Golf Foundation to further our mission of funding programs offering a healthy outdoor recreational environment that stresses the building of lasting personal relationships while seamlessly instilling life’s core values for the youth, disabled, and under-served communities of Sacramento. And if my team wins, the Morton Golf Foundation will receive a share of the $100,000 grand prize!
Please consider making a contribution (of any comfortable amount) through my fundraising page:
All donations go directly to the Morton Golf Foundation, as well as help me win the grand prize on the foundation’s behalf—with every $5,000 I raise in advance, I earn a “mulligan,” which can only help me that much more toward winning a share of the $100,000 grand prize!
Thank you as always for your past support and continued generosity.
All the best,
Tom Morton | Director of Coaching & Development
