Tee It Up for the Troops is a great organization. I wish I would’ve found them sooner as golf has played a significant role in my overall mental stability since coming home and transitioning into civilian life.
As the father of a soldier who served in Iraq, the brother of a 20 year veteran, and the son of a WWII/Korean veteran,I am honored to be involved with the TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS organization. From humble beginnings at the request of a soldeir serving in Iraq for his family and friends to do something for the soldiers and the families back home, a grass roots effort was created in 2005. In five years TIUFTT has raised over $2,000,000.00 without any national media exposure. It is the american citizen telling the veteran you are appreciated-THANK YOU.
There has been no other veteran-oriented non-profit or charitable organization with which I have been involved, or that I am aware of, that is more dedicated and visionary than this one. The events organized are as well-run and inspirational as any I've seen. It is also among the lowest expense ratio 501(c)3 charitable organizations around which means almost all the money collected by this organization goes directly to support veteran's causes. Tee It Up For the Troops, Inc. was created in 2005 to help support the fallen and disable members of our Armed Forces and their families. The NATIONAL DAY OF GOLF was subsequently formed and has since produced hundreds of golf outings throughout the country where proceeds benefit veterans of all branches and conflicts. This organization is led by a core of dedicated veterans and volunteers. It's mission is to respect and remember the service of those that have given so freely to protect our great nation. It is guided by its charter to garner broad public and corporate support for the needs of veterans and their families through structured patriotically oriented events at both private and public golf courses; stand alone fundraising events, sponsorships and direct donations.
