WGCC members are proud participants in the Eagles for Children & Evans Scholars Programs
EFC's Mission Statement
FOR THE KIDS!
Eagles for Children is a simple, fun, and engaging program that unites your club for a common cause. We use the game of golf and one great moment in golf, “when you score an eagle,” to benefit disadvantaged children.
How it Works
Eagles for Children is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting local charities helping disadvantaged youth through partnerships with golf clubs. Members of participating clubs pledge a nominal amount for every eagle scored on their course during the season. 100% of the proceeds from eagles go to organizations serving children in the members’ community selected by the participating club.Eagles for Children is a simple, fun, and engaging program that unites your club for a common cause... THE KIDS!
Western Members alone have donated over $200,000 to local children's charities since 2013!
