The First Tee of Pittsburgh is a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.


At The First Tee of Pittsburgh no child or group is ever turned away for inability to pay.  In addition all equipment is provided, free of charge.  Your contribution helps economically disadvantaged children participate in our golf and life skill clinics.  The First Tee’s program teaches core values inherent in the game of golf, including confidence, respect, judgment, responsibility, courtesy, honesty, sportsmanship, integrity, and perseverance.


Today one in four public high school students drop out before graduation and nearly half of all African-American and Hispanic students never complete high school.  That is why we have been asked to join a national strategic plan to double our enrollment in the next five years.  The good news is that The First Tee’s programs do make a difference; a multi-year independent research study revealed that 73% of participants who participated in The First Tee Life Skills Experience™ felt the program gave them the confidence to excel in the classroom. 100% said they used the life skills they learned though The First Tee at school. But for every dream realized by a participant of The First Tee, there are even more unfulfilled because children do not have the opportunities to succeed.   

Please help us bring the game and its positive values to children and teens in the Pittsburgh area!
