How It All Started
Since 2003, the David Toms Foundation has raised and donated more than $3.7 million to local organizations, specifically those with programs to help underprivileged, abused and abandoned children. The foundation was recognized in 2006 by the Wall Street Journal as the “Best Athlete Foundation” for having the lowest percentage of expenses for a sports-based charity.
Charitable Contributions - $2.4 million
Disaster Relief - $1.3 million
It is the top priority of the David Toms Foundation that the majority of the funds raised go directly to enrich programs designed to mentor and teach children. Past recipients of these charitable funds include organizations such as Big Oak Ranch, Volunteers of America, Providence House, Holy Angels and the First Tee. Through the generous support of donors, the David Toms Foundation achieved a major goal of creating a golf academy in 2013. The David Toms Academy 265 has become the hallmark program of the David Toms Foundation where underprivileged and at-risk youth learn important life lessons through the Our Mission sport of golf.
