Here's How You Can Help

Become a Foundation Member

Membership is open to all current and former residents and members of The Venice Golf and Country Club.  More than two-thirds of our funds come from annual membership contributions.

 

Foundation participation is voluntary, and all contributions are fully tax-deductible.  Annual contributions of $100 or more entitle the donors to Foundation membership and voting rights.

 

All donations go directly to the VGCC Fund, which is a unique donor-advised fund. Our own Board of Directors determines which local charitable organizations receive grants from this fund each year.

Foundation Fund-Raising Events

We like to think of these as "Fun"-Raising Events.  This past season, we held our traditional Putting Contest, which has become an annual favorite.  Our event committees have come up with some great ideas that will really spice up the classics next year.  Join us for great prizes and lots of fun!  Click here for upcoming events.

Host Your Own Fund-Raiser

Members and organizations have been generous with their time and funds. For example,

  • ArtisTree, G4S and our own Master Association have donated proceeds from food sales at the Spring Fling.
  • Social Network, "State" Nights, Community Outings, and other events have donated significant proceeds from impromtu 50/50 raffles.  Several winners have even donated part or all of their winnings to the Foundation.
  • A particularly talented member has donated proceeds from his piano tip jar.

We greatly appreciate the spirit of community and sharing you show when you make charitable giving a part of your activities.

The Foundation relies totally on the commitment of volunteers from the VGCC community.  If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors or one of our committees, please contact us at info@vgccfoundation.com.
