We’ve Accepted the Challenge, Will You Join Us?

The Charles Schwab Challenge Grant is happening right now at First Tee — Virginia Blue Ridge. Our chapter’s ability to receive this match will be tied directly to your support! If we raise the same amount of philanthropic dollars as we did in 2022 plus an additional $58,000 by the end of 2023, we are eligible for $29,000 in matching grant funds. This means every dollar you give provides additional opportunities to help us positively impact the community.

Charles Schwab is a name synonymous with smart investments.  His incredible success as a financial executive is an example of how far the core values such as perseverance, judgment, and responsibility can take a person in life.  Mr. Schwab is also an avid golfer who understands that the game is the perfect training ground for life lessons that go far beyond the course.  

Charles Schwab has stepped up to invest in our work in #BuildingGameChangers in a *BIG* way! His $25,000,000 Challenge Grant is an opportunity for First Tee & First Tee—Virginia Blue Ridge to rebrand, rebuild, and expand the difference we make in our community.

Your donation will help us receive grant money and will help us reach thousands of more kids, like Belle.

“The First Tee has introduced me to life skills and guided me through character development that has prepared me for my current and future plans. I am very blessed to have the support of many through First Tee.” -First Tee alumna Belle Tan
