The NYSGA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) formed for the purpose of supporting golfers in New York State. The Foundation, as guided by the board of directors, has allocated over $400,000 in the past decade towards this mission through grants supporting junior golf and scholarship for employees of NYSGA member clubs. In 2012, the NYSGA Foundation accepted the responsibility of hosting the NYSGA Hall of Fame, which recognizes those who have made significant contributions to the game of golf in New York State.
