Get Involved

Your involvement can directly impact the kids we serve and the skills they develop in First Tee. Get involved today and help give kids the tools that will last them a lifetime.


How is my monetary donation used?

More than 40% of our young people are participating on a scholarship due to their families’ economic status. They receive programs for $5 or less! Here is how your donation can move the needle in the lives of young people.

Monetary Donations

Just 10% of our annual revenue comes from program fees.  We rely on individuals like yourself to make First Tee – West Michigan available to our young people!

Checks can be made out and sent to:

First Tee – West Michigan
3450 36th St. SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49512

Participate in one of our events!

Golf Marathon

Do you love to play golf, and play golf quickly? Play and support our kids at First Tee through our Annual Golf Marathon, held annually, typically in May-June, when the days have the highest amount of sunlight.

Players commit to raising $2,000 in pledges from their friends, family, and contacts.  Most pledges come in per-hole pledges ($1/hole) or flat donations ($100).  Last year, over 100 people participated!

Golf Outings

Long ball hitter who loves scrambles? Put together a team and play at our Annual Golf Outing, typically held at Thousand Oaks Golf Course on the last Monday in July.  We also hold an annual outing at Muskegon Country Club in August.  We’d love to have you join us!
