Chip ‘n Chicks Grant
Administered by the Canadian Junior Golf Association
A primary mandate of the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is to provide opportunities for our youth to learn, play and develop their character through the game of golf. By partnering with Chip ‘n Chicks, the Canadian Junior Golf Association will be offering a grant each year to a deserving female.
The Chip ‘n Chicks Grant
- Open to all females under the age of 17
- Grants may be used for CJGA membership, a CJGA tournament entry or CJGA Team Canada international expenses
- Applications through a letter (letter description below) should be completed and faxed to 905-731-6058 or emailed to Earl Fritz, CJGA Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This grant can be the difference of a young girl(s) playing golf for the first time and finding her true passion or the opportunity to help afford additional competitive experiences in the pursuit achieving personal goals and dreams through golf.
What ever the purpose, the Chip ‘n Chicks Grant is to find someone with a passion and help her pursue it.
What should be included in a letter of application for support:
- Write a letter telling the CJGA what golf means to you and who influenced you the most in your pursuit or why you want to start playing the game of golf.
In a separate letter, you should provide the information below asking for assistance.
- Write clearly and concisely: Describe what your situation is and how the CJGA can help you to resolve it.
- Detail the problem: Explaining the challenge you or your family faces is a critical part of your application. Be sure to detail the exact nature of the problem and in particular the effects that it has. For example, you love the sport of golf but affordability is a problem.
- Be specific about what you need: State clearly the amount of financial support you require., how it will be used and what difference it will make. Most funds for individuals and families in crisis restrict contributions to under $400 but can provide more in exceptional circumstances.
- Other funding sources: Detail in your letter any other approaches to funding organizations. This will demonstrate that you are doing everything you can to resolve your situation.
- References: The CJGA requires that you provide a character reference alongside your letter or alternatively provide the contact details for someone who the CJGA will be able to easily contact.
