How the money is used

The Folds of Honor impact hits close to home for this group of Patriotic Pros. Approximately 24,000 scholarships have been awarded to deserving recipients since inception in all 50 states and beyond. This academic year alone, more than 4,500 scholarships were dispersed; a 12% increase over previous year. However, not all qualified recipients were awarded due to lack of funding. The need remains great. Over the last twelve years, golfers nationwide have been instrumental in raising donations for Folds of Honor making it the largest grassroot golf fundraiser in the country.
