"Fairway to the Future: The Drive to 1,000 Scholars"


Over the past year, the Evans Scholars Foundation received applications from a record number of caddies from across the country whose futures hold great promise but whose families are struggling to save and pay for college.

Through the Match Play Challenge — the major gifts component of the organization's annual Par Club fundraising campaign— the Evans Scholars Foundation continues to change the lives of deserving caddies by awarding them full tuition and housing scholarships to top-tier universities coast to coast.

Last year’s Match Play Challenge raised nearly $14 million, helping the Foundation offset annual scholarship costs that reached $20 million. The annual scholarship costs will reach $23 million for the 985 Scholars in school this year, and it is projected to rise by at least $1.5 million each year. Nearly half of all total major gifts were donated by Evans Scholars Alumni.

Since 2011, the Match Play Challenge has raised more than $90 million in support of caddie scholarships.
